EYFS

The EYFS Statutory Framework 2021 (from birth to 5) sets standards for the learning, development and care of children from birth to five years old and supports an integrated approach to early learning. This is supported by the ‘Development matters’ non-statutory guidance.

 

EYFS Statutory Educational Programme: 

Developing a strong grounding in number is essential so that all children develop the necessary building blocks to excel mathematically.  Children should be able to count confidently, develop a deep understanding of the numbers to 10, the relationships between them and the patterns within those numbers. 

 

Children in our Pre-School and Reception class will develop mathematical skills through outdoor play, stories/rhymes/songs, using natural materials, small world objects, playing games and many more engaging activities. 

 

YEARS 1-6

The National Curriculum sets out year-by-year programmes of study for Key Stages 1 and 2. This ensures continuity and progression in the teaching of mathematics.

 

Teaching 

 

The school uses a variety of teaching and learning styles in mathematics lessons. Our aim is to develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding in mathematics. We do this through a daily mathematics lesson where children are given opportunities for:

 

  • Practical activities and mathematical games
  • Problem solving
  • Open and closed tasks
  • Individual, group and whole class discussions and activities
  • A range of methods of calculating e.g. mental, pencil and paper and using a calculator
  • Working with computers as a mathematical tool
  • Using a wide range of support resources e.g. number squares, digit cards and number lines
  • Using and applying their learning in everyday situations

 

Through our creative approach to teaching and learning we also seek to explore and utilise further opportunities to use and apply mathematics across all subject areas

 

Teachers Planning and Organisation

 

These schemes provide teachers with exemplification for maths objectives and are broken down into fluency, reasoning and problem solving, key aims of the National Curriculum. They support a mastery approach to teaching and learning and have number at their heart. They ensure teachers stay in the required key stage and support the ideal of depth before breadth. They support pupils working together as a whole group and provide plenty of time to build reasoning and problem solving elements into the curriculum.
