Supporting your Children with Maths
As a school we have a duty to deliver the National Curriculum. Understanding expectation often causes some confusion.
The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
- reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
- can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
The National Curriculum Programmes of Study cover the following key areas:-
Number – Number and Place Value
Number – Addition, Subtraction, multiplication and division
Number – Fractions (decimals from Year 4 and percentages from Year 5)
Geometry – properties of shape
Geometry - position and direction
Statistics (Year 3 - Year 6)
Ratio and Proportion (Year 6)
Algebra (Year 6)

We also encourage the children to use some very useful maths websites which can be accessed on the Children & Parents' Zone
