## Mathematics

Being confident with number - and able to tackle problems is not just about 'learning maths' - at Woodlands C. of E. Primary School we see mathematics is a life skill. As such, we place great emphasis on helping all of our children to become number confident and able to enjoy the challenge and need for perseverance that mathematics presents.

Across our school, we follow the National Curriculum for mathematics (a link to which is detailed below), and use the White Rose Hub for our long and medium term planning. At our school we understand that mathematics is not only about getting 'sums' right or wrong - we see maths as an opportunity to develop the following key skills:

- Looking for patterns and generalising
- Showing curiosity and persevering
- Solving and posing problems
- Making connections across maths topics
- Communicating mathematically
- Reflecting on learning and knowing next steps

The National Curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:

- become
**fluent**in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils have conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately to problems **reason**mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language- can
**solve problems**by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

The content of the mathematics curriculum is divided into parts, which are covered through our maths calculation policy which ensures a continuity and progression of skills.

- Number, Place value, Rounding, Approximation & Estimation
- Addition and Subtraction
- Multiplication and Division
- Fractions, Decimals and Percentages
- Measures
- Geometry - Properties of Shapes
- Geometry - Position, Direction and Movement
- Data
- Ratio and Proportion
- Algebra

Throughout the above content, children are focused on ‘Using and Applying’ throughout; children use the skills and knowledge they have gained in solving practical problems independently and with others to both learn and develop mathematical concepts.

Children undertake 5 sessions of Maths per week including mental maths, a morning maths short session and tables; children are expected to know all their tables by Year 4. However, just as the English curriculum is embedded across all subjects, so is mathematics. From the collection analysis of 'real' data in science experiments, to the use of angles in controlling floor robots in computing, to simple counting in music - maths sits centrally at the heart of our curriculum alongside English.

Children at the end of year 4 will complete the standard multiplication times tables test.

**Please find below the files which include the the Rainbow Maths Q & A sheets for each year group. These can be downloaded in order to support children with their practise at home. Make sure to download the correct element or colour that your child is working on. The order as in the letter above needs to be followed. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask your child's class teacher.**
