Maths in Early years

Our Maths teaching is supported by Numicon Firm Foundations.

Each half term we will send out a letter explaining the key mathematical concepts we will be exploring.

Maths in Key Stage 1

We follow a Maths Mastery approach, using the  Inspire Maths scheme as a guide. In order to support parents in helping their child in Maths at home, Oxford Owl, the publishers of Inspire have created videos and published excellent materials that address specific areas of the Maths curriculum including: counting, addition, subtraction, fractions and so on.

Support booklets on mathematical principles:

Contained within each booklet are mathematical models and principles, practical tips, methods and exemplification. We hope that you find the guidance useful. We would recommend the ‘you can’ sections that will really engage your child with fun and practical learning activities.
