Maths

Our Maths curriculum is geared to guide learners on their journey to a level of developing skills acquisition that will serve them for life. Wherever possible, we focus on teaching concrete maths before applying it to real life contexts and situations. Pupils will be introduced to and taught place value (counting in multiples of 6, 7, 8, 9, 25 and 1000; finding 1000 more or less than a given number; recognising the place value of each digit in a four digit number; order and compare numbers beyond 1000; rounding any number to the nearest 10, 100 and 1000; estimating numbers using different representations; solving number and practical problems); addition and subtraction (adding and subtracting numbers with up to 4 digits using the formal written methods; solving addition and subtraction two step problems in contexts); time (reading, writing and converting time between analogue and digital 12 and 24-hour clocks; solving problems involving converting from hours to minutes; minutes to seconds; years to months; weeks to days); fractions (recognising and showing, using diagrams, families of common equivalent fractions; counting up and down in hundredths; adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator). Of course, without real world application, these skills will only take a young person so far, which is why we, as a school and as a wider MAT, are committed to facilitating opportunities for the real world application of mathematical concepts, skills and processes.
