At Northleigh C of E Primary we see mathematics as a key life skill and we aim to create confident and inquisitive mathematicians. We follow the National Curriculum 2014 and we provide all of our children with opportunity to;
- fluently recall and use the basics of mathematics, including learning times tables, number bonds, number facts and their relationships
- talk and think mathematically – describing, explaining, convincing, justifying and proving
- solve problems by applying their basic skills with independence, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
- achieve this by delivering exciting and engaging daily maths sessions,that are appropriately modelled to give enough support whilst ensuring challenge. We believe it is crucial that all groups and abilities of learners feel success and demonstrate security in the skills they are practising and applying. We have developed a calculation policy that sets out the way children should solve all four calculations and this policy shows the progression throughout the school. Video clips of the four calculations can be found within the Calculations and Times tables tab.
Along with what we offer at school, we know that any reinforcement of skills at home, benefit the children greatly and links to a range of websites and support can be found in the Useful Links tab.
