Maths at Longwick
The purpose of Mathematics at Longwick is to develop children of all abilities, particularly those with special educational needs and children with greater ability, to develop a love of learning and knowledge of the world around them, solve problems, to reason, to think logically and to work systematically and accurately.
By building on our White Rose scheme of work, we will build a challenging curriculum which will meet the needs of all children no matter what their starting point, children will explore different mathematical concepts and relate these to everyday life.
Our Longwick Learners will be inspired by their Maths lessons and be alive to the mathematics all around them in every day life: they will know that the skills that they have learnt will help them to solve any real world problems with confidence.
Our children will be equipped with the knowledge of how maths is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy in most forms of employment and in future life.
Overviews and Skills Progression
Our Longwick Maths scheme of work, which details coverage and skill progression across the school, is uploaded below. Please note that this is a guide and unit lengths may change dependent on teacher judgement.
Please check your curriculum map on your class page for more information each half term.
This document explains the calculation strategies (and gives examples) taught in KS1 and KS2.
Children are set weekly tasks through Prodigy Maths which will work alongside the work set in class. In addition, children will be set work through Times Table Rock Stars (TTRS) and Numbots for KS1 which will help build their confidence in multiplication.
NumBots and Times Tables Rock Stars
Children in EYFS, KS1 and Year 3 use Numbots to help develop their understanding of addition and subtraction. Children in KS2, use Times Tables Rock Stars to develop quick recall of multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12.
Each week we celebrate our champions, who have made great progress in the last 7 days, with a certificate.
