Our aim is for children to feel confident and positive about their maths, to engage actively in mathematical activities, becoming increasingly responsible for their own learning, and to develop understanding of how and when to apply the skills and concepts they have learned.
Our main planning resources for mathematics are the Hamilton Trust and Abacus Active Learn, supplemented by other activities and materials where appropriate.
Mathematics is taught mainly through a daily lesson, although where possible we also identify opportunities to apply and develop mathematical skills in other curriculum areas and through our cross-curricular Topic work.
Maths is assessed half termly using a written test.
An annual focus on maths through a dedicated day gives the children the opportunity to explore a range of maths related topics.
Information on expectations for each year group can be found in the Key Skills link below.
In addition the calculation strategies explain the progression of calculation skills across the primary age range with examples to show how the children are taught.
