In the Early Years Mathematics is embedded into children's daily routines and through the Foundation Stage 'play' based curriculum so that from an early age children develop an enjoyment of number. 

All children in KS2 have two daily Maths lessons, one focussing on Arithmetic and the other on Reasoning skills. All children in KS1 and 2 have Maths lesson in which exciting opportunities for the application of number skills are built in. From Year 1 they learn times tables through songs, games and chanting which will help prepare them for the new Year 4 maths multiplication test that will start from 2020. Talk and Challenge are  key foci throughout all maths lessons and there are lots of opportunities for the children  to discuss, discover, reason and explore to help them  become great problem solvers both indoors and outside.

From Year 1 children have a My Maths account where class teachers can set online homework for them to complete. There are a wide and exciting range of activities for the children which helps them  practise and master keys maths skills. In addition to this the children may also choose to log on and play exciting and engaging maths games during non-directed time.

There are also after school Maths Clubs that children can join to help promote a love of Maths, for example Discovery Zone where they can work on My Maths and Times Table Rockstars.

Ocean Maths sessions are held for children and their parents in the Early Years. This is a great opportunity for children to learn Maths with their parents whilst having fun. At the same time parents develop an awareness of the skills and knowledge their children are expected to have.

 We have subscribed to Numbots and Times Table Rockstars. These are online Maths programs that support quick recall of number facts and times tables respectively. Numbots is for Reception and Key Stage 1 and Times Table Rockstars is used from Year 2 upwards.
