Maths Curriculum information

Key Information

Here is an overview of our maths scheme for this year, our Curriculum Statement of Intent and our KIRF documents (Key Instant Recall Facts) for 'Autumn 1', for each year group, that might support your own maths work with your children at home.

Maths learning that stays with you!

Within our school we subscribe to Mathletics. This is an on-line maths website which challenges children to apply the skills they have been learning. All the activities are aimed to support Maths learning through engaging, challenging content that will develop student understanding and skills, taking them on to the next stage of their development.

Mathletics is a practice environment that rewards hard work, with dynamic, unlimited questions. It encourages students to learn from their mistakes, and move through new challenges at their own pace. There's no feeling that can match mastering a skill on Mathletics, since it comes with the satisfaction of knowing you really do “get it”.

Your child's class teacher will give your child their individual log in details so that they can access the website from home too. Your child's class teacher will set specific tasks aimed at your child's ability or your child can simply play mathematical games to support their learning.

Calculation Policy

Here is our calculation policy, where you can see the different methods used in each year group for the children to secure the basic 4 operations. 

Our calculation policy uses the Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract approach. Last November, we held an information evening to explain the approach and show you how we use concrete maths equipment through school. 

Our children have helped to bring the Calculation Policy to life and we hope to create more videos like these to explain the methods that we use in school.  These videos can be used by teachers, parents and children to help consolidate the methods, using concrete, pictorial and abstract strategies.

Times Tables

By Year 4, children should be able to recall their multiplication facts up to 12 x 12. To help them develop these skills, children can log on to www.ttrockstars.com using their username and password. On Times Table Rockstars, pupils can practice their tables. They are then able to improve their Rock Speed and climb the Rockstar ranks! The online games reward children with virtual coins for each correct answer, which they enjoy spending on upgrading their personal rock avatar.

What is Barvember? 

Bar Modelling is a useful tool for helping children visualise and then solve maths problems. Even some of the most complex problems can be seen much easier when represented visually.

Throughout November,  teachers will be setting daily challenges for the children to try.  Dojos will be awarded to children for excellent effort, perseverance and simply having a go, as well as those showcasing fabulous maths skills!

There will be a 'King and Queen of Bar-Modelling' certificate for excellent effort in each class!
