Maths Curriculum

There are currently new and exciting changes happening to our maths curriculum ready to implement in September 2014. Mathematics will be organised into the following areas;

- Number

- Ratio and Proportion

- Algebra

- Measurement

- Geometry

- Statistics

 

 

Early years

Involves providing children with opportunities to develop and improve their skills in counting, understanding and using number, calculating simple addition and subtraction problems; and to describe shapes, spaces, and measures.

 

KS1

The principal focus of mathematics teaching in key stage 1 is to ensure that pupils develop confidence and mental fluency with whole numbers, counting and place value. This should involve working with numerals, words and the 4 operations, including with practical resources.

KS2

Lower key stage 2 - years 3 and 4

The principal focus of mathematics teaching in lower key stage 2 is to ensure that pupils become increasingly fluent with whole numbers and the 4 operations, including number facts and the concept of place value. This should ensure that pupils develop efficient written and mental methods and perform calculations accurately with increasingly large whole numbers.

Upper key stage 2 - years 5 and 6

The principal focus of mathematics teaching in upper key stage 2 is to ensure that pupils extend their understanding of the number system and place value to include larger integers. This should develop the connections that pupils make between multiplication and division with fractions, decimals, percentages and ratio.
