Mathematics Curriculum

Mathematics is one of the core subjects of our school curriculum. Much emphasis is put on the acquisition of sound concepts in number, all forms of measurement (length, weight, area, volume, capacity, time) and shape. To achieve this aim the children are given plenty of practical experience, and are encouraged to discuss their observations and to consider further possibilities. They also learn to record their work – as sums, as graphs, and using appropriate units. Their knowledge and understanding, at every level, is continually challenged by problem solving and investigational work. Our curriculum includes the following:-

Number
Ordering, matching, counting.
Addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of both whole numbers and fractions.
Percentages.

Measurement
Time, length, capacity and volume, weight, area.
Reading scales.

Algebra
Patterns and symbols, inverse operations.
Simple formulae, co-ordinates and generating sequences.

Shape and Space
Sorting and classifying 2-D and 3-D shapes.
Angles, symmetry, bearings, reflection, congruence, rotational and reflective symmetry.
Area, perimeter and volume.

Handling Data
Collecting and recording data leading to a frequency table, block graph, Venn diagram tree diagram or Carroll diagram.
Probability.
Accessing information in a simple data base.
Constructing and interpreting statistical diagrams.
Calculating mean and range of a set of data.

Supporting your child’s numeracy at home

At school, we are committed to helping children to make links between the strategies they are being taught in mathematics and their uses in everyday life. In order to support their learning further we have identified some ways in which you can help your child at home.
