At St Leos’s and Southmead Primary School we hope to prepare our children for the future by ensuring that in line with the NC all children: Become fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics, are able to reason mathematically and can solve problems by applying their Mathematics
We are committed to developing children’s curiosity about the subject, as well as an appreciation of the power of Mathematics in their daily lives. We aim to provide a culture where children are confident to take risks and that they can use their mathematical skills and knowledge confidently in a range of contexts.
Teachers use Power Maths Scheme of Work as a basis for their planning. Times Table Rockstars is used to support children’s recall of times tables throughout Year 2 and KS2 and Numbots is used to support the younger children with their number facts. We provide a rich mathematical curriculum which encourages the use of a range of manipulatives. We expect our children to have high expectations and to be resilient. Teacher use targeted questions to draw out ideas and reasoning as well as to assess children’s understanding. Teachers draw on children’s previous knowledge and show how maths is essential in the world we live in. Children are made more aware of their future careers that involve mathematics during ‘ Ambition Week.’
Our curriculum will equip the children with the skills to become mathematically literate. They will be confident in their mathematical abilities. They will become independent and build resilience.(Through problem solving )
Mathematics assessment will be ongoing as teachers will mark on the spot, giving verbal as well as written feedback. Formal assessment is carried out at the end of each term and inputted into Target Tracker.This assessment will inform future planning and activities and helps us to identify children who may additional support.
