Maths is not linked to topics but is generally taught as a separate subject. We base our teaching both on the National Curriculum objectives for each year group but also on each child's next steps in learning. We have a clear Calculation Progression from Year 1 to Year 6 which can be downloaded above.

We expect all our children to learn their times tables up to 12x12. They will be tested on these regularly. We use Times Tables Rockstars for children to practise their times tables and they do a test several times a week in which they are challenged to beat their previous score. Children can log onto Times Tables Rockstars at home and practise.

We also place a high emphasis on children using their knowledge and understanding to solve problems.

We are currently developing our approach to the teaching of Maths through working on developing a mastery approach.  We have identified that we can further develop our use of imagery, mathematical language and wide ranging problem types.
