Mathematics

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 




 

 

 

 

Our mathematics vision is to deepen the children's mathematical understanding through a mastery approach.

 

 

 

At Alwoodley Primary School, we focus on having fun in Maths, learning in real life situations and solving problems. We enjoy taking our learning outside by exploring maths trails and doing active maths. We use current events to make our learning meaningful. We are also committed to getting active in our maths lessons as part of our commitment to being a healthy school. 

 

Maths of the Day - Let's Get Active!

If you fancy getting doing some active maths at home, you could check out the Jack Hartmann maths videos on his YouTube channel (particularly for teaching times tables and counting).

This website has great ideas for active maths including some Key Stage 2 ideas for percentages and negative numbers. If you have a football fan, they might particularly like it!

Our maths lessons incorporate the key principles of teaching for mastery. We take the whole class through the mathematics in small steps to build deep understanding. We ask children to reason, discuss and connect their mathematics using mathematical vocabulary and a range of representations to show mathematical concepts and relationships. We expect children to develop fluency with their recall, and use of key number facts including addition pairs and multiplication facts. We challenge children by asking them to reason about and apply their mathematics, and to identify common errors and misconceptions.

Mathematics in the Early Years

 

In Nursery and Reception, we ensure that children experience maths in all areas of learning. As children work and play, there are always opportunities to develop maths skills.

In Early Years, the children have fun learning about numbers as they sing number songs using puppets, books, numbers and mini world resources. 
We learn about numbers and their value in so many different ways.
Role play areas enable children to use maths in real life situations.

 

TenTown

 

We use TenTown in Nursery through to year one. This is a scheme that introduces numbers 0 -21 by learning a story for each number and learning a rhyme to help us with number formation.

 

 

You can get involved as Parents at:

Little Big Maths

 

We also follow the scheme Little Big Maths in Reception. This scheme links to the Early Years curriculum and breaks it into achievable steps. This begins with getting children use to 'amounts' of objects, which leads to 'counting', then to 'learn it' which is done by fun games and songs. Finally we apply this to 'calculations' which is to understand additions, subtractions and multiplications. 

In Reception we use TenTown as our reward for doing WOW work.

Mathematics in Key Stage 1

Year 1 - Money problem solving

Year 1 - properties of 3d shapes

Year 1 - Outdoor Maths! Solving missing number questions with Numicon.

Year 1 - using a bridge map!

Year 2 - using a bar model to find a quarter of a number.

 

 

Mathematics in the Key Stage 2


In years 3,4 and 5. The classes have 'working walls' for maths. This helps the children to work independently remembering  the skills that they have learnt and how to apply them using their mathematical skills.

 

 

 

  

 

 
 

 

Throughout Key Stage 2 they use 'Mathletics' to challenge themselves and compete against other children from different schools and countries.
