Mathematics

Our vision for Mathematics at Appleton Roebuck

At Appleton Roebuck School, mathematics is a subject which has its own unique place within our curriculum.  It provides learners with powerful ways to describe and investigate an ever-changing world.  Children can experience a sense of awe and wonder as they solve a problem for the first time, have a means of looking at the patterns that make up our world, discover more sophisticated solutions and make links between different areas of mathematics.

At Appleton Roebuck School we acknowledge that Maths is fundamental to the development of our children. We strive to inspire our children to love maths and have deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths – a culture that produces strong and secure learning. At our school we aim to shape assured, happy and resilient mathematicians who relish the challenge of maths. Our children will become independent, reflective thinkers, whose skills not only liberate them in maths but also support them across the curriculum.

 

All children, irrespective of gender, culture, class or disability are given equal opportunity to acquire the appropriate skills, concepts and knowledge required by the National Curriculum. The National Curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all children:

      become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through varied and frequent practise with increasingly complex problems over time, so that children develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately;

      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.

 

At Appleton Roebuck, we follow the White Rose scheme of learning. White Rose offers a scheme of learning which is a clear, time-linked plan for learning. The schemes are written for year groups and cover the whole school year of learning.

In early years, the aim is to support the ethos of EYFS and learning through play by providing opportunities for a mathematical rich learning environment. We offer high quality enhancement ideas for each area of learning. Our Maths curriculum is divided into phases which provide opportunities to develop the understanding of number, shape, measure and spatial thinking. At Appleton Roebuck we value vocabulary and reading. In Early Years, each maths topic that is taught comes with a suggested book list.

Throughout KS1 and KS2, children will build on the main topic areas; number, measurement, geometry and statistics. Our Maths is taught through a cumulative curriculum. Once a topic is covered, it is revisited many times again in other contexts. Our Maths curriculum has broken down each main topic into key areas of learning. For each of these areas we provide the children with; opportunities to recap previous learning and vocabulary, opportunities to build on knowledge of year group specific National Curriculum objectives and opportunities to revisit specific topics throughout and between years.

Supporting your Child at Home

 

We really value the contribution that families make to supporting their children in learning and embeddin mathematics.  Here are a few ideas to help:

 

● Look for numbers everywhere – on signs, number plates, front doors

● Play games which include counting or number recognition e.g. snakes and ladders, snap, ludo.

● Practise counting in steps of 2, 5 and 10

● Looking at the time – concentrating on o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.

● Letting your child handle money and work out how much things cost, how much change is needed, different ways of making the same amount e.g. 10p = 1x10p, 2x5ps, 5x2ps, 10x1ps

● Talk about different measurements and quantities e.g. amount of milk in milk bottle, drink in a carton or can, weight of pasta in a bag

● Get children involved in cooking and weighing out different ingredients e.g. flour or water

● Practise times tables (little and often).
