Maths at Stanley St. Peters
Mathematics at Stanley St. Peter’s is planned around the assessment system Target Tracker. Within the system there are mathematical statements for each year group. These are objectives that are to be met in each year group for the children to be secure in their learning by the end of the year. Teachers use these statements to plan their weekly lessons. This is where the new backwards planning comes in, stages of learning are planned to help the children to meet the chosen objective by the end of the week.
To ensure all the statements are met we follow medium terms plans from Pearson Active Learn. Active Learn has been created for the 2014 national curriculum. It helps to provide differentiated teaching and learning resources to support all abilities across the school. (A link to the Abacus scheme of work and Active Learn Primary can be found below.)
To support those who find mathematics more challenging we apply a range of support strategies and resources. One key resource used across the school is Rapid Maths.
For deeper learning and mastery, we use ideas and resources from NCETM (National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics). This is a website with ideas and resources for teaching mathematics to all ages of children.
A copy of our whole school calculation framework can be found below. We hope you find this useful particularly in helping you support your child in their learning.
If you have any questions relating to our Mathematics Curriculum please do not hesitate to contact school.
