Mathematics at St. Agnes Primary School
Coordinator: Mrs M. Stapleton
St. Agnes teaches Mathematics to develop life long skills. We will always need the skills we learn in Maths in all areas of our lives.
We teach Mathematics using the White Rose scheme of work based on the National Curriculum objectives published in 2014.
White Rose has produced some helpful videos for parents/carers explaining how we teach Maths at school called 'Maths with Michael'. They cover a range of areas including place value, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and algebra (Year 6 only). Click on the link below to view the videos:
The main Fluency aims of the National Curriculum are for children to learn to:
At St. Agnes, we encourage the children to use practical equipment when learning a new concept, then using pictures/jottings to represent their learning before moving to abstract representations (written work/calculations).
Fluency is Key!
For children to become more fluent with their calculation strategies, we use maths fluency books and set regular maths fluency activities.
Your child will receive one activity to practise during the week. Please make sure your child practises every night and that it is signed and dated.
Thank you for your help and support as always.
