Maths

Maths lessons increase the confidence of all children. This is achieved through ensuring all lessons are delivered with a focus on progress and enjoyment of Maths. As with all other subjects, we deliver new skills and techniques in a range of styles so all pupils have the opportunity to progress.


We use the 2014 National Framework as a basis for the learning but tailor the curriculum to suit the needs of the learners. From Years 1 through to 4 the focus is on the following strands: 

 

  • Number & place value
  • Addition and subtraction
  • Multiplication & division
  • Fractions
  • Measurement
  • Geometry: properties of shapes
  • Geometry: position & direction
  • Statistics

 

In Year 5, the teaching is based on the following areas: 

 

  • Number and place value
  • Addition and subtraction
  • Multiplication & division
  • Fractions
  • Measurement
  • Geometry: properties of shapes
  • Geometry: position & direction
  • Statistics

 

In Year 6, the Maths strands covered are:

 

  • Number & place value
  • Addition & subtraction
  • Multiplication & division
  • Fractions (including decimals and percentages)
  • Ratio and proportion
  • Algebra
  • Measurement
  • Geometry: properties of shapes
  • Geometry: position & direction
  • Statistics

 

We aim for every lesson to involve reasoning and problem solving skills so that the students can see how the skills they learn can be applied.
