Maths

Mathematics enables children to make sense of the world around them by developing their ability to calculate, reason and solve problems. Children will be taught numeracy skills daily and have opportunities to explore these skills in other subjects. Numeracy lessons will develop confidence and competence in number work; shape, space and measures; handling data and the using and applying of these skills. We aim to equip children with a range of computational skills and the ability to solve problems in a variety of contexts, preparing them for life after school.

Here you will find information to help you understand how your child tackles calculations. The methods in the documents above are the ones being taught in classes throughout the school. If you wish to discuss any of these methods further, please do not hesitate to speak to your child's class teacher.

Year 5 using many maths mastery methods within their maths lessons.

Maths Measure Morning

This morning, Thursday 18th May, year 5 took part in a maths measures morning which involved all forms of maths such as measuring angless, weighing and estimating weights of various items as well as creating a fruit cocktail drink made of various quantities of different fruit juices, all measured accurately using appropriate equipment...It was rather tastey!

On Friday 28th April 2017, year 5 set off to Doncaster Racecourse for a maths infused day. We had the most extraordinary and exciting day involving a background tour of the racing scene as well as watching two live races.

Throughout the day, we worked on a variety of maths problems in real-life situations, bringing the learning from the classroom into context.

It was fabulous!
