Aims of Maths Curriculum
How do we teach Maths?
Times Tables are at the heart of mental arithmetic, which in itself helps form the basis of a child’s understanding and ability when working with number. Once the children have learnt the times tables and related division facts by heart, they are able to work far more confidently and efficiently through a wide range of more advanced calculations as well as using them in real-life, every day scenarios. At Two Village Primary School, we believe that through a variety of interactive, visual, engaging and rote learning techniques, most children can achieve the full times tables knowledge required by the end of Year 4 and for the times tables check in 2020.
Below is the expected progression throughout the school but children who are ready, may progress into higher year group expectations once they have a secure knowledge of the times tables facts and can recall them accurately.
