All pupils receive a minimum of 6 hours of maths teaching a week. Teaching in mathematics is taught differently in Key Stage 1 and 2.
In Key stage 1 pupils follow a programme called ‘Maths – No Problem’ which supports the teaching of the National Curriculum through a mastery based approach. This is a hands on, practical resourced based scheme. For more information on this please see Ms Harris.
In Key Stage 2 pupils follow a programme called ‘Progress in Understanding Mathematics Assessment’ (PUMA). This includes both arithmetic and reasoning that are the core principles that underpin the National Curriculum.
We are targeting maths at Newfield this year to improve progress. A detailed action plan is available if you wish to view it.
Parents’ sessions will be taking place throughout the year to inform you about supporting your child with maths at home.
