Vision Statement

At St Edmund’s we want our children and their families to develop a positive and resilient attitude towards Mathematics as an interesting and valuable subject which will enable them to achieve success in life.

Pupils will build their understanding of Mathematics through developing arithmetic fluency alongside the skills of problem-solving and reasoning. Opportunities are given for pupils to access the Mathematics curriculum through a range of strategies: working cooperatively, collaboratively and independently. Through targeted teaching of vocabulary and structured conversations, our pupils develop the ability to express their ideas fluently and verbalise their reasoning clearly.

By providing clearly-structured opportunities for cross-curricular application of mathematics skills, we ensure that pupils see Mathematics as an integral and essential part of daily life.

If you would like to know more about the mathematics curriculum at St Edmund's, please arrange an appointment with your child's teacher or Mrs Dumbleton.

Maths around School

Maths No Problem

Year 3 and 4 are using the Maths No Problem resources this year. The children are loving the wide range of resources and activities, especially the textbooks which are bright, colourful and engaging.These pictures show the children using concrete, pictorial and abstract methods to record their learning.

Finding out about Numbers

Pupils in Reception Class have been learning about numbers in great depth. They have been exploring the 'two-ness of two', discovering many different ways of seeing and recording the number two.

Fun with Fractions

Year 6 have been exploring fractions using concrete and pictorial resources before moving on to the abstract. This helped them to develop their understanding of fractions as part of a whole and to visually identify fractions.

Fun with Shapes

Pupils in Year One and Two have been enjoying learning about 2D and 3D shapes.

They recently went on a 'Shape Hunt' around the school where they looked for 2D shapes in the environment.

They also created fantastic 3D shapes using modelling materials.

  

Interactive Maths

Year 5 pupils have been learning maths  using a range of interactive games and activities.

They have been classifying regular and irregular shapes, and using their knowledge of times tables to solve reasoning tasks and problems.

Keep practising on TTRockstars - you are so close to having more Rock Heroes!!!

 

Maths in Nursery

Our Nursery pupils have been taking part in a range of different Maths activities: counting, sorting and learning new vocabulary - 'straight' and 'round'. The children have also been singing number songs in their provision areas.
