Mathematics

The National Curriculum for Mathematics is implemented throughout the school through daily maths sessions. The curriculum aims to ensure children can have quick recall of facts, can reason mathematically and solve problems.

The curriculum is organised in a progressive sequence and areas including number, shape, measures and data handling. The children are encouraged to make links and connections across the mathematics curriculum, as well as applying it to everyday life and other curriculum areas. This enables the children to become competent and confident mathematicians. Our Maths Leader, Miss Smith, works closely with the White Rose Maths Hub and our local cluster of schools to continue to develop mixed-age planning and assessment and to enhance learning opportunities and deepen understanding for our pupils.  

Pupils in Reception have a maths rich environment, with hands on opportunities to explore maths in areas such as role play, outdoors and sand and water as well as through songs, games and challenges. 

Each year pupils in Class 3 take part in the Primary Maths Challenge, completing a series of puzzling questions and competing against pupils from across the country. 

Pupils across school work as house groups to make items to sell at our Christmas fair, calculating profit and decided together how best to spend the money in school.  They also have annual financial literacy sessions organised by Yorkshire Building Society, where they learn about the value of money, profit and loss, savings and budgeting.
