How do we teach Maths?

In our teaching of maths, we ensure that the teaching and learning of maths is exciting and enjoyable, where children can develop confidence and a positive attitude towards this area of the curriculum. We strive to equip all our children with the skills and knowledge they need to use maths effectively and be able to live, work and succeed in a numerical world. We believe that maths should be fun and  relevant to real life situations, whenever possible. For this reason, we ensure maths is practical and set in meaningful contexts to promote its importance in everyday life. We teach children a range of strategies to solve different problems and equip them with knowledge and independence to choose the most appropriate method and equipment to solve the problem.


Calculation Policies

Please find attached the agreed 'STARS' Calculation Policies which detail how we teach mental and written methods for each of the four operations: addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.


TT Rockstars

We have now launched TT Rockstars for all of our pupils here at St Mary's.  Your child will have brought home an individual letter which advises of their login details.  Please encourage your child to use TT Rockstars - daily if possible!  You may find out more about the system by following this link:  https://www.ttrockstars.com/
