Mathematics provides a way of viewing and making sense of the world. It is used to analyse and communicate information and ideas and to tackle a range of practical tasks and real life problems. We aim for all our children to see maths as a vital part of everyday life and aim to nurture a confident, resourceful and enthusiastic attitude towards maths that will stay with them through their education and beyond.
Our curriculum for aims to ensure that all children, including those with special educational needs or disabilities; become fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics; are able to reason mathematically and can solve problems by applying their Mathematics
These skills are embedded within Mathematics lessons and developed consistently over time. We are committed to ensuring that children are able to recognise the importance of Mathematics in the wider world and that they are also able to use their mathematical skills and knowledge confidently in their lives in a range of different contexts.
We want all children to enjoy Mathematics and to experience success in the subject, with the ability to reason mathematically. We are committed to developing children’s curiosity about the subject, as well as an appreciation of the beauty and power of Mathematics.
Number Facts Awards Scheme
The ability to be fluent in the understanding of number facts including times tables is key to becoming a successful mathematician and enables children to approach increasingly complex problems with confidence. From Key Stage One onwards the children participate in a Number Facts Award Scheme to encourage them to become better mathematicians through learning all aspects of number. The challenge focuses on rewarding children as they become proficient in basic number facts before moving on to times tables when ready.
On-Line Independent Maths Learning
Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of times tables practice. When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important – the more facts a child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help pupils master the times tables. Your aim is to become a ‘Rock Star’ – you will achieve this when you can answer times tables questions correctly in 3 seconds or less. If your recall becomes even quicker you can become a ‘Rock Hero’ and, finally, a ‘Rock God’.
