Our Mathematics Co-ordinator is Mr Walker
Here at Upperby Primary School we follow The National Curriculum for Mathematics 2014.
Development Matters and the Early Learning Goals (Number, Shape Space & Measure) provide the long term planning for mathematics taught in the school.
Mastering maths means children acquiring a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject.
Pupils build on 'fluency' (knowing key facts) and move on to reasoning and problem solving, showing they can adapt concepts in different situations.
Children are able to communicate their thinking to show they have fully mastered their learning.
Years 1-6 use the White Rose Maths Hub schemes of learning as their medium term planning documents. These schemes provide teachers with exemplification for maths objectives and are broken down into fluency, reasoning and problem solving, key aims of the National Curriculum. They support a mastery approach to teaching and learning and have number at their heart. They ensure teachers stay in the required key stage and support the ideal of depth before breadth. They support pupils working together as a whole group and provide plenty of time to build reasoning and problem solving elements into the curriculum.
How you can support your child:
Help with any homework they find difficult.
Help them to learn key maths facts for their age
Use 'Times table rockstars' and 'Maths shed' online to develop maths further at home.
