At Malmesbury Park Primary School we aim to develop excellence in mathematics. We achieve this through a well-planned and delivered curriculum. The teaching and learning of mathematics at Malmesbury Park Primary School is creative, practical and engaging so that children not only develop broad and transferable skills, but also a love of the subject.
EYFS and year 1 through to year 6 follow the Maths Mastery Programme. Maths Mastery is a detailed programme which builds firm foundations in mathematical knowledge and understanding. It is focussed on key skills, ensuring these are secure before moving on to new concepts. The children are involved in a highly structured lesson each day. Every lesson includes Talk Time, where children practise and rehearse mathematical explanations using correct vocabulary, Do Now activities which are highly practical and engage children in securing their knowledge and understanding as well as Independent and Collaborative activities. Alongside the daily maths lesson, a Maths Meeting is held each day. This again, is highly structured and follows a similar pattern each day. However, it is faster paced and focussed on rehearsing a range of facts, including days of the week, months of the year and times tables.
Please look at the whole school curriculum for each year group to find out what your children will be covering in maths across the year. You may also find it useful to look at the NC Overviews as these highlight the objectives every child is expected to achieve by the end of the academic year in each year group.
