Mathematics

Addition and Subtraction Policy

Multiplication and Division Policy

At Savile Park Primary School our inclusive mathematics curriculum encourages all children to have a resilient, collaborative attitude towards the subject of mathematics. Through our ‘can-do’ approach, children are encouraged to become independent thinkers who are confident, excited and committed to taking on engaging and thought-provoking challenges within their maths lessons. Mathematics is integral to all aspects of life and with this in mind we endeavour to ensure that children develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them throughout their education and beyond.

As a school, we utilise the White Rose Maths Hub scheme of learning which provides the children with the skills to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, giving daily opportunities to problem solve and reason mathematically in a range of real-life contexts. All lessons include an ‘I do, we do and you do’ phase as all teachers model their thought process to new learning to encourage children to activate their prior knowledge and learn new concepts. Maths lessons are planned with a systematic build-up of fluency, problem solving and reasoning tasks to encourage focused and meaningful discussions to further enrich understanding and develop each child’s mastery of mathematics.

We provide the pupils with a mathematics curriculum and high quality teaching to produce individuals who are numerate, creative, independent, inquisitive, enquiring and confident. We also strive to provide a stimulating environment and exciting resources so that pupils can develop their mathematical skills to their fullest.

Home learning:
 
In discussions with parents we understand that maths is the most challenging area in which to support our children. Therefore, At Savile Park Primary School, maths home learning focuses more on practising mental maths skills, such as number bonds and times tables, sharing a mathematical book or playing a maths games. This assists our children’s acquisition of the written maths curriculum in school at a faster pace and simplifies the support needed from parents. All children, from Year One to Year Six, have an account to My Maths home learning scheme. Children across school also have access to Times Tables Rock Stars for multiplication and Numbots to support their early number work.
