Maths is taught daily in all classes. The curriculum is designed to first develop fluency skills, before then using reasoning and problem solving to apply these skills.  Maths lessons usually have a ‘starter’ activity (sometimes linked to the main objective for the lesson; sometimes focusing on key arithmetic skills) followed by teacher input before giving children the chance to practise skills, usually independently.  During the input session, children will be given the opportunity to engage in a variety of ways (e.g. using individual whiteboards, paired talk, playing games, working on the IWB)


By the time children leave at the end of Year 6, we want them to:

  • Demonstrate an understanding of place value, including large numbers and decimals
  • Calculate mentally, using efficient strategies such as manipulating expressions using commutative and distribute properties to simplify calculations
  • Use formal methods to solve multi-step problems
  • Recognise the relations between fractions, decimals and percentages and express them as equivalent quantities
  • Calculate using fractions, decimals and percentages
  • Substitute values into a simple formula to solve problems
  • Calculate with measures
  • Use mathematical reasoning to find missing angles
