Achieving Excellence Together

KS1

Mathematics is a core subject in the National Curriculum. The fundamental skills, knowledge and concepts of the subject are set out in the National Curriculum programmes of study. They are organised into distinct domains although pupils should make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems (place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, measurement, geometry – shape, position and direction and Statistics). Our children apply their mathematical skills and knowledge to other subjects across the curriculum.

 

The principle focus of our mathematics teaching in Key stage 1 is to ensure that children develop confidence and mental fluency with whole numbers, counting and place value. This involves working with numerals, words and the four operations - manipulatives are essential eg concrete objects and measuring tools. At this stage our children also  develop their ability to recognise, describe, draw, compare and sort different shapes and use related vocabulary. Our teaching involves using a range of measures to describe and compare different quantities such as length, mass, capacity/volume, time and money. Our children also read and spell mathematical vocabulary at a level consistent with their increasing word reading and spelling knowledge.

 

Teaching mathematics in Key Stage 1 is based on the following key principles:

  • Mathematics will be taught every day (at least 4 hours per week)
  • direct teaching and interactive oral work with the whole class and groups
  • an emphasis on mental calculation and rapid recall to develop fluency
  • appropriate differentiation, with all pupils engaged in Mathematics relating to a common theme

Our Year 2 children have learnt to partition 2-digit numbers using dienes, coins and straws. They are now learning to add and subtract 2-digit numbers and solve problems. They are maths superstars!

Active Maths

Children from Key Stage One have been having fun expanding and testing their Maths skills by participating in Active Maths. Active Maths involves the children using PE and physical activity to help improve the attainment in Maths. Maths is taught in a fun and engaging way whilst increasing physical activity.
