At St Matthew’s we aim to provide our children with a high quality mathematical education which provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, and develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about the subject. Mathematics equips children with a powerful set of tools that they can use in everyday life and we want all our children to have confidence in their problem solving skills.
Currently we follow the Wandsworth Medium Term Planning which outlines the topics and themes covered by each year group. The calculation policy shows you the models we use to teach mathematic principals and concepts. Looking at this document will enable you to see the expected progression in mathematics from Year 1 to 6.
In addition, an important part of building confidence and competence in maths is achieving number fluency. Number bonds and timetables are both equally important for your children’s success. Please find the below the times table resource that has proved to be successful in Shanghai.
