We aim for all our pupils to become strong mathematicians! To help parents understand what we teach and when, we’ve put our coverage cards below. These basically break down the National Curriculum objectives into phases (or terms). Some objectives are repeated in phases 1, 2 and 3. The coverage cards also show the expectations of what should be achieved by the end of the year; we aim for the vast majority of pupils to have ‘S’ ticked- meaning they are ‘secure’ in that objective.
Our Maths Curriculum – see the documents below to see which maths is taught when!
Written Methods of Calculation
This document outlines the methods we use for calculations.
We use Big Maths to improve our pupils’ mental maths abilities. Below are some files that may help!

X-Factor Times Tables
Times tables are so important for the children to learn off by heart! They help in so many other parts of maths; division, fractions, finding factors, etc. To help our pupils, we’ve started a new times tables system in school – The ‘X’ Factor!
Each year group has 6 different levels to work through before they have their name entered onto the hall of fame. The children have helped me choose the names for these levels. To complete a level, the children will need to answer all questions correctly in 5 minutes on two different occasions.
Want to do more? In each cloakroom area there is a tray of extra times tables challenges for children to take home and complete whenever they want. Or if you want to do some over the holidays/weekends they are available to download below!

Times Table Songs
These songs have been voted for by the children. Simply click on the number to be taken to a YouTube video on that times table! How many songs do you know?
Hit the Button
Hit the Button provides quick fire questions on number bonds, doubling, halving, times tables, division facts and square numbers against the clock. It’s brilliant for improving mental maths and calculation skills, but particularly times tables either up to 10 or up to 12 times. Click on the image below to visit the website.
