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 allows children to practise their times tables with a view to them becoming increasingly more able to recall number facts. Mathletics is also used to support exposure to different types of mathematical questions.
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.
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.
