At St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School we see mathematics as an interconnected subject which should encourage creativity, discussion and exploration. We want the children to see maths as being relevant and purposeful to their lives. Their maths experiences should be one that develops the children’s ability to think mathematically and one which allows them to apply the tools to which they have been exposed in a variety of ways.
Maths with Michael
As it is a challenge to come into school to share learning with parents at the moment, White Rose have put together some brilliant videos to explain how we teach Maths in school these days. There are videos explaining place value, subtraction, even algebra! Click on the link below to take a look. Please remember all class teachers are here to support you in any way we can.
Times Tables Rock Stars!
We have signed up to an online Maths learning area called Times Tables Rock Stars! This will allow children to play interactive times tables games pitched at their level both at school and at home. Teachers will be able to see how often children are logging on and may direct children to particular activities. Log in details have been sent home to each child from Year 2 up. Please follow the link below to access. Enjoy!
We have signed up for a free trial of an addition and subtraction online learning area called Numbots. The children in Year 2-6 can access this using their TTRS login details. Click on the link below!
Parent Activity Sessions
Pre Covid we have run parent activity sessions to share how we teach Maths at St Joseph's. If you would like to know more about how we teach these skills in each year group, please check with your child's teacher for further information.
Please review our calculation policy to further understand the progression in calculation across the year groups.
