Mathematics is taught in line with the requirements of the New National curriculum.
If you click on the icon below, this will show you our end of year targets in maths for each age group, from Year One to Year Six.
Every day, the children have an additional focus on developing basic number skills and quick recall of number facts.
This document models the strategies we teach the children to solve calculation problems.
Please find below some useful web links. These will take you to sites with lots of activities and games that will support your child's learning in maths.
Total Recall is an initiative we are introducing to encourage the children to develop the quick recall of number facts that is essential if they are to be successful within the new National Curriculum for maths. The children are awarded different colour button badges when they reach certain milestones (in order):
Orange: number bonds to 10 (e.g.9+1, 3+7)
Yellow: one more and one less to 20 (e.g. one more than 15, one less than 12)
Green: number bonds to 20(e.g. 18+2, 5+15)
Pink: number bonds to 100 (e.g.54+46, 33+67)
Bronze: 2,5,10 times tables (up to 12x)
Silver: 3,6,4,8 times tables (up to 12x)
Gold: 7,9,11 times tables (up to 12x)
Black: 12 times table and TOTAL RECALL of all previous tables and number bonds.
The expectation in the new National curriculum is that all children should know their 2x, 5x and 10x tables by the end of Year 2 and all tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4.
CHILDREN MUST PRACTISE AT HOME. They must be quizzed by their class teacher for each badge and Miss Murdoch, Miss Blake or Ms O’Sullivan will double check their fingertip quick number facts for speed and accuracy before a badge is awarded.
Once the children have achieved these badges, there are more to come…
