How We Teach Mathematics

In Reception Class we follow the guidance from Development Matters (Click here to view Development Matters) with the aim of every child reaching or exceeding the Early Learning Goals for mathematics.

For children in Years 1 – 6, St Andrew’s follows the National Curriculum. The National Curriculum for mathematics is organised into end of year expectations. Each child is encouraged to develop, secure and master each criteria from their own year group. It is important that the children have a deep understanding of each concept and can apply their learning to different situations. Our aim is to turn children into better problem solvers and better mathematicians.

The booklets below illustrate the path the children will follow in school to improve their calculation skills. We encourage parents to use these to help support their children’s learning at home.
