Subject Leader: Mrs R Turner
At St Joseph’s, we aim for every pupil to have a positive and confident attitude towards mathematics. We ensure that we equip all our pupils with the ability to think mathematically and solve problems in a range of contexts, understanding the importance of mathematics in everyday life.
We follow the National Curriculum from Years 1 – 6 and the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum in Reception. Teachers plan to ensure that all pupils can perform key skills by the end of each year whilst also deepening pupils understanding of those key skills through a range of problem solving and reasoning activities.
A wide range of methods are used to ensure that the lessons are stimulating and inspiring whilst meeting the needs both of the class and each individual, at every level. Our core scheme derives from the highly respected Abacus tool kit that has been carefully crafted to inspire a love of mathematics and mastery of the curriculum. Many other supplementary resources are used both to support and extend children.
Children receive weekly MyMaths homework tasks that build upon the objectives they have been working on in class.
