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.
From Year 1 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. A 'Learning Journey' is completed at the end of each unit of work to show progression.
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 an assessment scheme called 'Puma' which will give every child a standardised score and this can be tracked throughout school at the end of each term.
While tests can be used to give a snapshot of what a child knows, your child will be assessed throughout the year using the Staffordshire Grids and this will inform an overall assessment of your child.
