Children from Years 1 to 6 are taught a daily maths lesson.
The curriculum is organised into 7 main teaching areas:
- Number and place value
- Addition and subtraction
- Multiplication and division
- Fractions (including decimals & percentages)
- Geometry (Shape & Position)
Plus Ratio & Proportion and Algebra at year six.
Teaching and learning is based on these areas which are taken directly from the Mathematics National Curriculum Program of study. Teachers select learning objectives from the curriculum to inform planning for the differing needs of their respective classes. Within each class and year group children will be working at different levels – some will be working above and some will be working below the Age Related Expectations for their year group (see Assessment Policy). As a result, all teaching is adapted to the specific needs of the child to ensure all children make the best possible progress.
Children in the Early Years Foundation Stage follow a separate curriculum.
As a part of our creative curriculum, maths is also taught in other contexts. This gives the children of Marshfield the opportunity to tackle maths problems in real life situations, thereby extending their ability to master the curriculum.
To ensure consistency through the teaching of calculations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) at Marshfield Primary, we have developed our own calculations progressions document (See below). This gives a step by step guide to the progression children follow in these four areas.
Please use the documents below to support your child with maths.
