The exciting things I will learn in Maths at St Joseph's are:
At St Joseph's we follow the National Curriculum for Maths. We follow the Lancashire Red Rose Maths scheme in years 1-4 and we follow the Lancashire Maths Planning disc for years 5 and 6. We follow a mastery approach in all year groups. We use the Times Tables Rockstars to help us learn our multiplication facts.
The exciting things that take place in Maths are:
We have Times Tables Rockstars tournaments in which we can challenge members in our school community and beyond. We also take part in NSPCC number day in which the children take part in fun number activities all day long. Children also have the opportunity to use some of their mathematical knowledge in other curriculum areas such as using knowledge of measures when baking and to help with making products in Design and Technology.
Why do I need to know this?
Mathematics teaches children how to make sense of the world around them through developing their ability to use number, calculate, reason and solve problems. It helps children to understand relationships and patterns in both number and space in their everyday lives. The Mathematics curriculum should be bold, provide breadth and balance and be relevant and differentiated to suit the needs of all children in the modern world. It should be flexible, motivating all pupils, thus encouraging success at all levels. The use of mathematics is an essential part of everyday life and we believe that all children can achieve and become confident mathematicians. It is important for children to have a secure awareness of mathematics in their daily lives for example confidently using money to buy food or pay for a bus fare and being able to follow a recipe to cook for themselves. We also aim for children to be able to read timetables as lots of our children will catch public transport to get to secondary school.
