There are seven strands of learning giving a broader overview of the Mathematics curriculum in the primary phase. Objectives are aligned along these seven strands in order to demonstrate progression in each. These are: Number and Place Value, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and division, Fractions, Measurement, Geometry and Statistics. Mathematics is taught in its own core curriculum area and across the curriculum where appropriate. The children are encouraged to use and apply Mathematics in real life situations.
The children in Key Stage 2 take part in weekly Magic Maths lessons with follow-up sessions to support areas to help make progress. They also complete half term assessments with data collected and analysed in order to identify gaps in learning.
Please find below some maths resources which may help you to support your child's learning at home:
Maths homework is set through the website: My Maths. Children are issued with their own log in details and should be able to access their homework when set by the teacher. There are also a range of other resources and maths games which you can play together at home:
We spend time at school teaching basic calculation; learning timestables is especially important as it helps to underpin a variety of different areas in maths. Children work through our maths superhero scheme - are they Batman or Thor? If you would like to practise these further at home you may download these:
