East Peckham Primary School

Challenging our thinking, building our learning, creating our future

Maths

How do we teach Maths at East Peckham Primary School?

At East Peckham Primary School we follow the Maths No Problem approach in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2.  These resources are one of those recommended by the DfE. We aim for our children to master mathematical concepts so they are ready for Maths in the next phase of their education and in the real world.

 

You will see in the documents below the lesson break down and when different topics are due to be taught. There will be times when a teacher needs to spend longer or short on a topic than stated below due to the needs or strengths of the children.

 

EYFS Maths is taken from the EYFS Handbook and Development Matters documents. All of which are available online.

 

Please speak to your child's class teacher if you have any questions.

Maths Homework

At East Peckham Primary School we want our children to become confident mathematicians and develop a real love for the subject that can have a substantial impact on life beyond the classroom. Our maths homework in years 1-6 is based around this vision and we ask that children practice the vital skills that develop mathematical fluency.

Children will focus on a times table or number bond in class and that times table or number bond pattern will also be sent home for children to learn and practise. Each Friday the children will complete a challenge to show how well they have grasped the skill rehearsed. When the children get 100% on these challenges, they will move on to the next challenge. Children cannot move on until they get all questions correct so that children do not have any gaps in their number bond or times table knowledge. When children complete a stage or series of stages, they will receive a certificate.

Take a look at the document below for more information and how you can help at home.

Please speak to your child's class teacher if you have any questions.

 

 

You only need to learn 66 times tables!
