Maths

Aims of Maths Curriculum 

 

  •  Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.

 

  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry. Justify and prove using mathematical language

 

  • Solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

 

 

How do we teach Maths? 

 

  • Maths is taught daily.
  • We follow the concrete, abstract and pictorial approach to teaching.
  • Each lesson lasts for approximately 1 hour.
  • Mental mathematics or skills based lessons take place reguarly. 
  • Multiplication tables are taught and practised regularly from Year 1 -6 and set for homework using Timestables Rock Stars.
  • Working walls are used to support children’s learning through modelled examples, key vocabulary and problem solving.
  • Daily arithmetic lessons take place outside of maths lessons 
  • Children are provided with opportunities to work collaboratively.
  • Children are provided with regular opportunities to problem solve and reason. 

Times Tables 

 

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.

 

Year 1:

Be able to count in 2s, 5s and 10s fluently, backwards and forwards.

Be able to recall multiplication facts for the 2s, 5s and 10 times tables.

 

Year 2:

Be able to recall multiplication facts for the 2s, 5s and 10 times tables confidently, fluently and accurately.

 

Year 3:

Be able to recall the multiplication facts for 2s, 5s, 10s, 3, 4, and 8s confidently, fluently and accurately.

Year 4:

Be able to recall all times tables up to 12x confidently, fluently and accurately and know some of the related division facts.

 

Year 5 and 6:

Be able to recall all times tables and their corresponding division facts confidently, fluently and accurately.

 

Homework

 

KS1 and 2

  • Regular practise of the multiplication and division facts using Times Tables Rockstars (TTRS) in preparation for a weeklent test
  • Mathletics and a paper based homework set on alternative weeks 

 

EYFS 

  • A weekly maths task 

 

Your children's log in details for Mathletics and TTRS will be stuck in to their reading record. Please speak to the class teacher if you have any problems.
