Teaching for Mastery:

Maths mastery is a teaching and learning approach that aims for pupils to develop deep conceptual understanding of maths rather than being able to memorise key procedures or resort to rote learning. Mastering maths means children and adults acquire the knowledge and mindset to allow them apply themselves in any real-life context with confidence and adaptability.

The Five Big Ideas of Mastery


Curriculum Overviews:

Please click on any of the below links to see an annual overview of that year group's curriculum. These Long Term Overview's are carefully sequenced to ensure children build on prior learning and maximise their understanding.

Year 1 Year 2 Year 3
Year 4 Year 5 Year 6 

Supporting with the Curriculum:

Alongside the above 'Overviews' we would also suggest accessing White Rose Maths' support videos. These are fantastic tools to support your child with their learning as they follow the same methodology as the teaching in school.

White Rose Maths - Home Learning

Select the year of your choice and press 'Filter'. Then choose the topic for which you wish to support or extend your child. This will give you access to videos for each of the skills within that topic for you to work through with your child.


Supporting your child at home:

Find below lots of weblinks to help support and extend your child's learning. Your child will have logins from school for Times tables rockstars, SumDog and Purple mash.

Useful Maths Links

To aid with their recall of key maths facts and tables, your child will also have a 'Maths Passport' which they should always be working on. All details, passports and guidelines can be
found below:

Math Passports

Please support your child at home by quizzing them on their "Maths Passport Target" to ensure they have fluency in these key maths skills which are fundamental to building strong mathematicians.

Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check

The multiplication tables check (MTC) is statutory for primary schools. The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether pupils can recall their times tables fluently, which is essential for future success in mathematics. The national curriculum states, ‘By the end of year 4, pupils should have memorised their multiplication tables up to and including the 12 multiplication table and show precision and fluency in their work’. 

Schools will have a 3-week check window in June to administer the MTC. They are done digitally and take only 5 minutes per pupil.
