At St Philips we aim to provide our pupils with a mathematics curriculum which will allow them to become confident mathematicians, helping them to see the links between different areas of mathematics and to apply their knowledge and skills in a wide range of contexts.
Below are copies of the target sheets children have displayed in the front of their mathematics books. These child - friendly targets breakdown the year group expectations for mathematics and clearly show the skills and knowledge pupils need to master by the end of the year in order to achieve expected levels of attainment.
Parents as Partners Mathematics Open Week
Thank you to all the parents who attended the Parents as Partners Mathematics Open Day sessions. Feedback from the sessions was very positive with many parents saying that it was useful to see the different calculation strategies children use and the various types of mathematical activities and challenges children tackle in their daily mathematics sessions. Photos from the open day can be seen below and a display has ben produced on the Mathematics display board outside the Year 3 classroom - the children really enjoyed sharing their maths lesson with you!
Another open day is planned for the Summer term but until then below are some useful website links with games and activities that you can complete with your children at home in order to support them with their mathematical learning.
KS2 Mathematics Challenge Board
In the KS2 corridor there is a ‘Problem Solving and Reasoning board’ This board displays the KS2 ‘Maths challenge’ for the week. Children are encouraged to solve the problem and display their solution, including an explanation on how they solved the problem, on the board for others to see.
Children can get a template of the problem from the board or you can download the problem from the file below. Remember to put your name and year group on your solution and display it!
