Maths

Your Maths Coordinators are Mrs Banks and Mrs Barfoot.

Maths is taught from Nursery to Year 6.

 

Maths is broken down in various topics such as:

  • Number,
  • Shape, Space and Measure,
  • Statistics,

 

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. 

 

Assessment:

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.
