Belong, Believe, Achieve
Recognising the importance of children developing an instant recall for mathematical facts, children in Nursery-Year 5 are working towards achieving their Maths. Passports.
The children will travel around the world as they tick off their instant recall targets. Children are asked to work on these for homework. The class teachers will monitor their learning and send out the new set of targets half termly.
Each class starts their Maths lesson with a short session of Big Maths. The four features of Big Maths lessons are: Counting, Learn its, It’s nothing new, and Calculation. Children are assessed at the end of the week.
The main part of our maths. lessons are planned using resources form Abacus Maths. by Pearson.
Children are assessed using the Abacus maths tests each half term. This assessment focussed on what the children have been learning.
At Christmas and in May, Key Stage 2 children take the NFER assessment. The Summer term test is sent away for marking allowing us to access data about our own pupils’ development in mathematics and to compare our data with a selection of schools nationally.
