Welcome to the Maths page!smiley



At Stone St Mary’s C.E. Primary School we teach maths to ensure there is full National Curriculum coverage where children are given opportunities to develop their reasoning, problem solving and fluency skills. The maths curriculum ensures progress by planning for effective questioning, differentiation, challenge and independent learning. Daily plans show assessment for learning opportunities which then feed into the next day’s lesson to ensure appropriate challenge and tasks are carefully planned for to allow progression in all mathematical areas, this also always adults to tackle misconceptions through ‘misconception surgery’ before the next day’s maths lesson which means that children who do not fully grasps mathematical concepts do not fall behind in their learning.


In EYFS children will explore the composition of numbers to 10, learn to subitise and build a firm understanding of number bonds to 5 and some to ten. Through real life Maths and exploration, the children will deepen their understanding of number. In Years 1 and 2 children will be given a really solid foundation in the basic building blocks of mental and written arithmetic. Through being taught place value, children will develop an understanding of how numbers work, so that they are confident with 2-digit numbers and beginning to read and say numbers above 100. In Lower Key Stage 2, children build on the concrete and conceptual understandings they have gained in Key Stage 1 to develop a real mathematical understanding of the four operations, in particular developing arithmetical competence in relation to larger numbers. This knowledge and understanding is then built on in Upper Key Stage 2 when children move on from dealing mainly with whole numbers to performing arithmetic operations with both decimals and fractions.


We teach maths for life, as part of cultural heritage and to begin to prepare children for life beyond school by considering the role of mathematics in their daily lives. Through developing maths skills children become better at thinking logically and analytically. Through solving problems children develop resilience and are able to think creatively and strategically. The skills we teach in maths will enable children to shine in other areas of the curriculum such as computing, geography and science. Our vision and values within this school link well to our overall teaching of maths, ensuring resourcefulness, reflectiveness, resilience and reciprocity in a safe and nurturing environment where children are able to grow in their knowledge and skills. We want children to be able to leave primary school with the key skills, knowledge and understanding to be successful global citizens.
