Mathematics is taught on a daily basis from Early Years up to Year 6. Teachers use The White Rose Maths Mastery scheme to plan and deliver lessons. The units of work can be seen in the document below. Teachers supplement this with other resources related to the mastery approach.
Classrooms have working walls which display the work being covered. With the mastery approach we believe in the need for a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach. This means each classroom has a range of practical equipment to try out ideas, followed by diagrams and pictures to help secure the learning and ending in abstract methods all linked to the maths curriculum.
Children receive homework which links to the work that has been carried out in school. We strive to meet the Government target for all children to know their times tables up to 12x12 by the end of year 4. Continuing to work with your child at home and encouraging them to learn their times tables has a positive impact in school. The following link will give you more information about the Year 4 times table check which will be statutory for all year 4 children in the summer term of 2020. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/multiplication-tables-check-development-process
We will be taking part in the pilot with our year 4 children this year but these results will not be reported.
