Being a Mathematician at Bosbury CE Primary School

Mathematics teaches us how to make sense of the world around us through developing a child’s ability to calculate, to reason and to solve problems. It enables children to understand and appreciate relationships and pattern in both number and space in their everyday lives. Through their growing knowledge and understanding, children learn to appreciate the contribution made by many cultures to the development and application of Mathematics. Children are able to use their mathematical skills to answer some of their 'Big Questions'. 

- Mrs. R McManus (Bosbury CE Primary School Maths Lead)

 

  

 

The school uses a variety of teaching and learning styles in Mathematics lessons. Our principal aim is to develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding in Mathematics. We do this through a daily lesson that has a high proportion of whole-class and group-direct teaching in Key Stage 1 and 2. All of our teachers are fully trained in Maths Mastery through the Maths Hub. We use a combination of the National Centre for Excellence in Teaching of Maths Hub resources as well as the White Rose Maths resources to support all of our teaching and planning.

 

  

   

 

During these lessons we encourage children to ask as well as answer mathematical questions. They have the opportunity to use a wide range of concrete resources such as number lines, number squares, Numicon and small apparatus to support their work. Mathematical knowledge is developed through the use of models and images from reception to year 6.

Children use computing in Mathematics lessons where it will enhance their learning, as in modelling ideas and methods. We encourage the children to use and apply their learning in everyday situations.

 

  

 

We also run a range of enjoyable Maths interventions throughout the school designed to give children further practice with mental calculation strategies such as Power of 2, First Class @ Number, Success @ Arithmetic, as well as afternoon catch-up sessions to allow children further practice of concepts covered in class earlier that day. Interventions are carried out several times a week in school, although there is an expectation that children accessing the Power of 2 scheme carry out further learning at home a few times a week in short ten minute intervals using the scheme with parents or carers.
