Mathematics at St Martin's

Mathematics at St Martin’s Primary School

 

Children at St Martin’s, follow the White Rose schemes of learning in Maths. This follows the mastery curriculum which ensures that our children develop a deep and secure knowledge and understanding of mathematics at each stage of their learning.

 

Our Maths teaching aims to ensure that all children:

 

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that children have conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately
  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

 

White Rose follows the 'concrete, pictorial, abstract' approach to teaching Maths and we encourage the use of practical apparatus for the introduction and reinforcement of concepts as well as mathematical language.

 

In line with National Curriculum’s expectation that the ‘majority of pupils will move through the programmes of study at broadly the same pace’, all children will have access to the same content. To meet the differing learning needs of the children, teachers may adjust the pace of the lesson, provide further reinforcement or greater depth, reasoning and problem solving learning opportunities.  

 

Times Tables Rock Stars

In year 4, all children nationally will be taking an online Times Table Check on all multiplication facts up to and including 12x12. To support this, children in Years 1-6 have access to Times Tables Rock Stars through their own username and password. Children have the opportunity to practice and build upon their times tables skills in a motivating and engaging way.

 

Maths Shed

Children from Reception to Year 6 also have access to Maths Shed through their Spelling Shed username and password. Children have the opportunity to practice and build upon their basic maths skills as well as their times tables through the use of different games and activities.
