Each mathematical operation is presented in a clear sequence that shows the learning progression from Foundation Stage to Key Stage 2. Many mathematical ideas and methods are linked, so pupils are always encouraged to apply the knowledge that they already possess to new areas of learning.
We strive to ensure consistency of approaches and complete coverage of the curriculum whilst also these are shared with home to illustrate the important techniques that will be used throughout the children’s mathematical learning journey.
There is strong evidence that children who practise and explore maths at home are more confident and able to apply their thinking to new problems and grasp new concepts more readily. Discussion of maths at home allows the children to consolidate what they learn through repetition and demonstration. The role of parents and carers in the mathematical journey is therefore vitally important.
While the new curriculum allows flexibility in the formal written methods used, there is an expectation that children will be able to use - and will be tested on - specific methods for calculating with multi-digit numbers. These methods are referred to within the Calculation Policy. Throughout this document, we show the stages of mathematical learning. These are the steps that the children go through to achieve understanding across the whole curriculum and do not necessarily relate to any particular year.
