At the Oaks Primary School, we ensure that the three aims of the curriculum are achieved by all pupils to prepare them for their future life. We want the children to:

  • become fluent in the basic skills of Mathematics including mental fluency
  • reason mathematically by spotting patterns and relationships, making connections and generalisations, explaining their reasoning by developing and justifying their hypotheses and findings using appropriate mathematical language and vocabulary
  • solve a variety of problems of different degrees of sophistication

To support the development of fluency, we have introduced two app-based learning tools that can be used at home and in school.Times Table Rockstars (Y2-Y6) and Numbots (Rec- Y1) allows children to practice their times tables or their number bonds with a view to them becoming increasingly more able to recall number facts.

A special ‘well done’ to Kacey in Y4 who has achieved over 1 million coins on TTR! Kacey chose to have a ‘party afternoon’ with all her classmates to celebrate this fantastic effort.

Mathletics is also used to support different types of mathematical questioning school and at home. Your teacher has set your mathletics activities for the day. Check them out here: https://login.mathletics.com/

We also make sure that children reason around number bonds and time tables and that they solve a variety of fluency questions through Intelligent Practice as part of their daily Maths lesson at home or at school.

We created our Calculation policy and we use the White Rose Mastery planning in every year group from Reception to Year 6 together with the NCETM Mastery and Greater Depth Documents and the NCETM Progression Maps in Reasoning.
