Maths is a key part of any child's learning and a solid grasp of key mathematical concepts at primary school can set a child up as a confident and accurate mathematician for life. We follow the White Rose Maths mastery approach to learning, enabling children to develop a deep, long-term and adaptable understanding of the subject. 'Teaching for Mastery' describes the elements of classroom practice and school-wide organisation that combine to best support the children in their learning - fluency, reasoning and problem solving. By achieving mastery, a child develops a secure understanding of each mathematical concept, readying them to move on to more complex and advanced material.
We employ Times Table Rock Stars to embed recall of multiplication tables and Numbots to support the learning of basic maths skills. Both of these games can be played online at home (or via a free app) and we encourage children to play little and often: 5-10 minutes per day, 4/5 times a week.
