Our School Learning Journey:

 

What's Happening at St Matthew's...

At St Matthew's all classes do a daily maths lesson. 

 

We follow the National Curriculum Guidance for mathematics that explains what we need to do in each year group.:

National Curriculum Programmes of Study for mathematics

 

POWER MATHS

 

We use the Power Maths mastery scheme and do other maths activities weekly to support our maths learning.

 

Here are the yearly overview for Power Maths that the teachers follow at St Matthew's. 

We may spend more days or less days on each topic if each class needs to so these overviews are only a guide:

Reception Power Maths overview

Year 2 Power Maths overview

Year 3 Power Maths overview

Year 4 Power Maths overview

Year 5 Power Maths overview

Every half term teachers add a curriculum letter to their class page to inform

parents which areas they are working on during the half term.

TIMESTABLEROCKSTARS

 

All children have a log in for TimestableRockstars. 

Timestables are a fundamental part of learning in maths and once we know them off by heart, it enhances our maths learning.

At the end of Year 4, children are expected to do a timed timestable check where they need to get all the answers correct to pass. 

We encourage the children to go on it at home and at school. Click on the picture here to go straight to the website.  Ask staff if you need help logging in.

MASTERING NUMBER

 

Reception, year 1, year 2 and some children in year 3 and 4 are participating

in a Mastering Number fluency programme from NCETM which will support our fluency skills.

We do a quick daily fluency lesson and they are great fun.
