Mathematics

Ethos
We are passionate about learning and teaching in mathematics.  We believe all pupils can be successful in learning mathematics and have a true enjoyment of the subject.  We see mathematics as so much more that the simple manipulation of numbers on a page.  Through an engaging curriculum we deliver the requirements of the new National Curriculum, using problem solving and investigation as a way of learning new concepts and deepening understanding.

Curriculum
As of September 2014, our school follows the National Curriculum 2014 for Mathematics.   Each Year group follows their Programme of Study.  Please ask your child’s teacher, should you require more information.  You will also find more information in the Curriculum Webs.

Progression in calculation
Please see the attached documents showing the progression in written calculation strategies for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  Please note the examples indicate end of year expectations.  Teachers will use lots of practical and investigative approaches to develop secure understanding of the strategies across the year.
