Maths

Intent

We believe that Mathematical knowledge and skills are essential for success in everyday life. Staff have high aspirations for our children and believe that all pupils can make good progress from their starting points.

At East Borough, we have designed a curriculum that enables pupils to learn key skills and methods in Mathematics. Pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, develop their conceptual understanding, reason mathematically and solve problems. 

Throughout the Maths curriculum, there are links and connections between mathematical knowledge and why we learn it, as well as applying this knowledge to real life concepts such as money, time and measure. The Mathematics curriculum is broad and covers the whole National Curriculum. Teachers make links between different Mathematical concepts and to different subject areas such as Science.

The curriculum is planned in a sequential way, ensuring that pupils build on their prior learning. This gives them the confidence to tackle new concepts and be resilient when faced with unfamiliar challenges. 

At East Borough, we build a culture of enjoyment and confidence around Mathematics which ensures that pupils leave us ready for the next stage of their education. This, in turn, will help them to become life long learners of Mathematics.

Playing Board Games

Practising maths skills doesn’t have to be computer-based.  There are lots of fun ways in which you can bring maths to life for your child through simple games and activities. Whether out shopping, using the context of money to help develop your child's skills, or helping them to better understand measurement when baking or putting together the new rabbit's hutch, there's always an opportunity for a 'maths moment'!

Board games can be great for developing a child's maths skills too!  Playing these can be a really powerful way for young children to become comfortable with our number system, spotting patterns and literally playing with numbers. Some board games sneak in counting, sequencing and strategy as your child plays.


Websites for Parents

We are making lots of use of online activities here at school. Along with Times Table Rock Stars (your child will have received log in details from their class teacher) there are lots out there that you can use with your child.

Children learn best through practise and consolidating the skills that they have learnt. It is important that the children enjoy this practise as it can sometimes be a long process to master these skills.  We all know that children love technology so they should find these games and activities engaging and fun!

Primary Games - Here you will find lots of games and challenges covering many mathematical concepts.

Top Marks Maths Games - There are lots of games, many of them are tablet friendly too. Organised into age appropriate games, there are plenty of challenges for all ages.
