Maths YR to Y6:
We use Power Maths Programme across the school. This mastery programme is created in partnership with White Rose and includes detailed planning & guidance (including online tutorials) as well as text books and practice books.
Teachers are provided with a range of age-appropriate concrete maths tools (manipulatives) to help children to really grasp the mathematical concepts they are dealing with.
Maths – Fluent in Five & X tables:
Fluent in Five is an essential daily programme for developing fluency in the number operations from Y3 upwards (before then children do the Power Up only). It is essential that it is marked together as that is where the teaching of efficient methods and the addressing of misconceptions happens. We also have 2 or 3 slots a week set aside for TimesTables Rock Stars. We need to test children’s mental arithmetic weekly and specifically teach areas requiring improvement.
