Welcome the page dedicated to Mathematics at St Patrick's Primary School!
We love maths and we want to equip children and parents with the knowledge and understanding they need to support their maths learning journey. We hope that the information found on this page will be another step towards that aim. Please take time to explore the information here.
The Intent, Implementation and Impact document will give you a better idea of our aims and how we teach maths at St Patrick's Primary School.
We follow the White Rose Maths Schemes of Learning as a basis for our planning. Explore this website to find out more and discover the resources available to parents.
Mathematics in EYFS
The early learning goals outline the expected level of learning in mathematics by the end of the reception year:
Shape, space and measure:
These Early Learning Goals are achieved by following the White Rose Early Year Curriculum alongside the Mastering Number Programme.
Nursery Provision has access to these resources and use some of the continuous provision ideas as adult led activities to allow for a clear progression.
The document below outlines to topics and objectives taught throughout reception year throught the White Rose Scheme and the Mastering Number Programme.
The document below provides information and guidance about how to help young children, from birth to 5, develop some of the key mathematical ideas and skills that they will use throughout their lives.
This document shows the maths concepts taught in each year group from Year 1 to Year 6. It is broken down into topic areas to clearly show the progression throughout KS1 and 2.
Our calculation policies allow for consistency in the teaching of calculation strategies, including written methods across the school. We follow a CPA (concrete, pictorial, abstract) approach to the teaching of calculations. We strongly advise you to read these to better understand how to support your child at home.
The use of mathematical vocabulary is key to children developing an understanding of mathematical concepts and their ability to communicate their knowledge effectively, to reason and to ask questions to deepen their understanding. We pre-teach topic related vocabulary, display it in classrooms and encourage it's precise use throughout lessons. Below is a progression document which outlines the vocabulary that should be taught to each age group.
