Mathematics

At Leiston Primary School we follow White Rose Maths.  The White Rose Schemes of learning are designed to
support a mastery approach to teaching and learning, as well as to support the aims and objectives of the
National Curriculum.  We aim to provide the pupils with a wide range of experiences (practical activities and
investigative work) through which they develop their mathematical and numeracy awareness and skills.
The Maths lesson will always consist of counting, an element of reasoning followed by class or group
teaching with opportunities for pupils to practice and develop their knowledge and skills. We give a high
priority to the teaching of mental strategies; to solve number problems working on number bonds and
times table facts. We expect children to show mastery of each band from 1-6 as they progress through
the school. Children will have to show they can present their mathematics in a variety of ways. Secure
calculation and reasoning are prime considerations in the teaching of the maths curriculum.
Areas of the mathematical curriculum covered by the end of year 6 are:
  • Measurement
  • Properties of shape
  • Position and direction
  • Statistics
  • Ratio and Proportion
  • Algebra
  • Number and place value
  • Addition and subtraction
  • Multiplication and division
  • Fractions
Not all areas are covered from year 1
 
How we teach Times Tables:
From years 2 to 6 children take part in the times tables tracker programme.  This works on developing
fluency and speed when recalling multiplication and division facts.  The times table tracker involves 40
questions being answered in 4 minutes, the questions are based around different multiplication and division
facts.  When a child has completed a level a certificate will be awarded and then they will move onto the
next level.
