Your Maths Coordinator is Mrs Barfoot.
Maths is taught from Nursery to Year 6.
Maths is broken down in various topics such as:
In the Early Years, Maths is taught in a variety of situations practically to enhance understanding in the different topics.
In Reception to Year 3 we follow a programme called Maths Mastery which is rolling into the school yearly to ensure secure development of skills. More information on this programme can be found in the Parents' section on the school website. From Year 4 to Year 6 we follow overviews from the White Rose Hub. This gives teachers the units to be taught and the main objectives to be covered.
Under the new curriculum all children by the end of Year 4 should know all their times tables. We have introduced a tracking system to follow the knowledge of times tables from Year 1 to Year 6.
Early Years assessments are carried out throughout the year by observations and written evidence to support your child's Early Learning Profile.
Formal assessments are given to Year 2 and Year 6 and the results of these are recorded nationally and compared with other schools.
Reception to Year 6 will also carry out the termly White Rose Hub Assessments and this can be tracked throughout school using the school tracking system OTrack.
While tests can be used to give a snapshot of what a child knows, your child will be assessed throughout the year and this will inform an overall assessment of your child.
At Flash Ley we have Maths Mettings three times a week. These are used to consolidate key areas of mathematics in each class. Maths Meetings provide an opportunity to teach and revise 'general knowledge maths' which may not explicitly be covered during the maths lesson, and also allows the daily integration of maths into the surrounding environment. This means that pupils are practising concepts and skills on a regular basis, meaning they are continually building on their mastery of these concepts.
