Maths – Curriculum Information

Maths at Mallard:

On this page you will find out more about what we teach in maths across school and how we teach it. The documents below show an overview of the objectives that are taught in each year group in maths.


Intent:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics.
  • Develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly.
  • To reason and problem solve by applying mathematics to a variety of increasingly complex problems.
  • To build upon children’s knowledge and understanding from Reception to year 6.
  • To develop resilience that enables all children to reason and problem solve with increased confidence.


Implementation:

• We teach maths units provided by the White Rose Maths Hub and make/source other resources that are suitable for the objectives. We ensure that in our maths lessons children have opportunities to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving and emphasise the importance of using concrete resources to help children really understand concepts.


Impact:

  • Most children reach end of year expectations.
  • Well-planned sequences of learning support children to develop and refine their maths skills.
  • Children are able to independently apply their knowledge to a range of increasingly complex problems.
  • Children are able to reason with increased confidence and accuracy.


Times Tables:

Knowing times table facts and how they work is a fundamental part of Mathematics. They link into many areas of Maths and are essential knowledge to success in later stages of education. The National Curriculum sets out that pupils should know all times tables up to 12 x 12 including inverse division facts by the end of year 4.

  • Year 1 – End of year expectations to know 1, 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
  • Year 2 – End of year expectations to know 1, 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables including division facts.
  • Year 3 – End of year expectations to know 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables including division facts.
  • Year 4 – End of year expectations to recall and use all multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12.
  • Year 5 – End of year expectations to recall and use all multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12.
  • Year 6 – End of year expectations to recall and use all multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12.
