Maths

Welcome to the Fritchley C of E Primary School Maths page.

The purpose of this page is to inform parents of the ways in which they can help and support their children with mathematics.

Parents play an important role in improving their children’s maths, as most of what we do is based on problems that they encounter in the world outside of the classroom. There are lots of opportunities for parents to question their children and improve their understanding and this page is meant to act as a guide and support for parents, enabling them to take a more active role in improving their children’s Maths.

At Fritchley C of E Primary School, we aim to provide the pupils with a mathematics curriculum which will produce individuals who are numerate, literate, creative, independent, inquisitive, enquiring and confident.  We also aim to provide stimulating environments and experiences so that pupils can develop their mathematical skills to their full potential whilst at the same time developing a love of learning and an appreciation of the wonderful patterns underpinning the world of mathematics.

Maths is spreading far and wide at our school. If you would like to take a look at some of the fun activities we do in the Early Years and Foundation Stage (EYFS), KS1 & KS2, you are most welcome to visit us to see how Maths is taught in different classes.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to get in contact with myself or your child’s class teacher.

Many Thanks,

Ms Baker

 

Units of work for each term are based on five strands:

  1. Numbers and the number system
  2. Calculations
  3. Solving problems
  4. Measures, Shapes and Space
  5. Handling data

A variety of resources are prepared and used to help in the teaching of both to teach and practice mathematics. We use Rising Stars’ Objectives to plan daily lessons and Rising Stars’ Pathways to assess our pupils every half term.

This is how we organise our Maths lessons:

  1. A daily lesson of 60 minutes, consisting of three parts:
  • mental/oral starter as a warm-up
  • main activity
  • plenary to re-enforce the lesson
  1. Direct teaching and interactive oral work with the whole class and groups
  2. An emphasis on mental calculation
  3. Work on a common mathematical theme but at different levels to suit the range of abilities of children in the class.
  4. Timetables practice on a regular basis
  5. Problem Solving strategies and applying every week.
