The children at St Eanswythe’s learn Maths by following the National Curriculum using the White Rose Maths scheme of work as well as complimenting this with Hamilton Trust and Times Tables Rock Stars. These programmes use practical apparatus and a range of strategies to help the children become confident mathematicians.
To give children the best chance of becoming confident mathematicians, they need repeated practise with basic number skills. They need to know these skills by heart and to be able to use them easily.
We use the key concepts that children need to learn to achieve success in Maths – addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and equals.
Children are taught key concepts at age and ability appropriate levels as building blocks to future learning. They use them consistently so that understanding grows over time and they are able to apply Maths successfully to real life examples.
