The National Curriculum for Maths

The National curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics
  • Reason mathematically
  • Solve problems

At the Bilingual Primary School, we aim to implement these requirements by teaching a mastery curriculum. The essential idea behind mastery is that all children need a deep understanding of the mathematics they are using so that future mathematical learning is built on solid foundations. We expect the majority of children to move through the maths curriculum at broadly the same pace; however, more time might be spent on a concept with children who are not ready to progress, while other children may grasp concepts more quickly and challenged with more sophisticated problems rather than moving them onto new content. 

Home learning in mathematics

We do not set weekly maths homework; however, we encourage children to use the following online resources:

TT Rockstars is a fantastic online way to develop knowledge of times tables and division facts for all pupils from Y1-Y6. Times tables are recognised as essential to access many mathematical concepts. When it comes to times tables, speed AND accuracy are important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to do harder calculations. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help pupils master the times tables! 

The same password will also allow your child to access Numbots, which is an online game (currently only playable at play.numbots.com or through the Numbots app) playing little and often will significantly improve your child’s recall and understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts, which are critical foundations in maths.

Children also have access to Mathsframe, who provide online games, aimed mainly at children in Key Stage 2, which can be played on computers or tablets.
