Here at Summerfield, we are passionate about the teaching and learning of Mathematics. We encourage our pupils to feel confident and enthusiastic about using and applying their Maths knowledge in a variety of subjects and situations. In line with the National Curriculum, children will learn skills across a scheme of work that covers number, money, shape, space, measures and data handling. Through the use of the Busy Ants scheme, we ensure the coverage of all these area using a concrete-pictorial-abstract approach. This allows our children to have a firm understanding of the mathematical skills they are using.
We frequently assess the children’s progress through questioning, testing and marking.
We welcome the support of parents in all areas of Maths including learning number bonds and times tables. In addition, supporting your children in homework tasks is found to be very valuable for your children.
We are promoting Times Tables through a badge reward system. In order to earn the badges, children must be able to fluently recall each times table verbally and in any order.
Red Badge - 2, 5 and 10 times tables
Blue Badge - 3, 4 and 11 times tables
Yellow Badge - 6, 8 and 9 times tables
Green Badge - 7 and 12 times tables
