Welcome to the curriculum page for Mathematics.
The New National Curriculum
From September 2015, all pupils from Years 1 - 6 are being taught the New National Curriculum for Mathematics. This means that there will be a greater emphasis on 'mastering' the curriculum for the year group that a child is in rather than being asked to do work from the year above. As the curriculum has changed, so have the National Assessments that pupils sit in Year two and Year six. As a school we have prepared for the changes in advance and all of our teachers have been trained in what the new curriculum for Mathematics is and how to deliver it.
What can you at home do to help?
We know that children do better at school when they are supported in their learning at home. These are some of the ways you can help at home, no matter how old your child is.
Above all, mathematics has to be fun, practical and stress free. Remember that our children learn to calculate using methods which we didn't learn so be patient and don't insist on your child doing it 'your way'.
