At Fleet our aims are to ensure consistency and progression in maths teaching, and enjoyment and achievement in maths learning throughout the whole school. In line with the New National Curriculum, we plan and deliver sequences of lessons to cover all key areas of Maths, with a great deal of focus on number, mental maths and calculation skills. We prioritise daily teaching of maths across all year groups and endeavour to relate the subject as much as possible to real life situations and our class topics. Most importantly, we aim to engage children in the subject so that they leave Fleet as confident and secure mathematicians.
Maths is a core strand of the EYFS curriculum and daily focus Maths activities are provided for the children in both Nursery and Reception. We aim to expose the children to number and the language of Maths in order to develop a strong foundation for Key Stage 1.
Maths is taught daily throughout Key Stage 1, either through a carpet session and games, or a more formal activity. In Year 1 the children are currently following a ‘Maths Mastery’ program as we explore how this approach can benefit the school. The emphasis is on depth of understanding rather than breadth. This is developed further in Year 2 as the children secure their mental maths strategies in order to develop formal methods for calculation as well as focussing on memorising key number facts.
In Key Stage 2 there are at least four substantial Maths lessons a week with an additional shorter mental maths session. Methods for formal written calculation are developed and the children begin to apply their understanding of number to the context of fractions, decimals and percentages. Problem solving and reasoning skills are at the forefront of our teaching and the children utilise their skills in a range of contexts.
