Mathematics

 

 

 

 

 

 

 




 

 

 

 

Maths is an important part of every day life - it is everywhere! 

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. 

 

 

 

SMSC in Mathematics

 


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.

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.

 

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, the children use real money pay for their shopping. They make sure their prices match with the correct amount of coins.

Tuesday Maths Club with Year One.

In year 1 the children are currently learning doubling and halving. You can also see how numicon is being used to help children with their calculations. 

            

 

               

 

 

In year 2 the children are learning partitioning and addition using the swing method. They also have fun challenges that they can use to improve their own learning.

 

 

 


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.

Year 5 problem solving
