Mathematics at Lawrence

Curriculum Intent

In Mathematics, we want our children to be open minded, independent, respectful, resilient, active, creative and forward thinking.

 

We want our children to confidently use Concrete, Pictoral and Abstract resources to help them with their Mathematics.

 

We want our children to be Fluent in Mathematics.

 

We want our children to be able to Reason in Mathematics.

 

We want our children to be able to Solve Problems in Mathematics.

Curriculum Implementation in EYFS, KS1 and KS2

 

When our children have been taught a particular set of number facts such as the bonds to 10, 100 or 1000 or the x tables up to 12, or a specific skill such as counting in tens or hundreds, they need to keep these fresh in their heads. We aim to ensure this happens regularly through our 4-a-day practice.

 

At the centre of our Mathematics curriculum, we want our children to enjoy what they are learning. As such, we are using more computer based modelling and interactive games to support this.

 

Mathematics Implementation EYFS

Numbers

EYFS children at Lawrence:

 

count reliably with numbers from 1 to 20, place them in

order and say which number is one more or one less than a given

 

number quantities and objects, they add and subtract two

single-digit numbers and count on or back to find the answer

 

solve problems, including doubling, halving and sharing

Curriculum Impact

 

In every Mathematics lesson, teachers mark books regularly to progress with their short-term planning. We offer the best possible support for all of our pupils, including our EAL children. Skills in Mathematics develop each year. 

 

Our staff use baseline assessments to regularly assess what the children know as the topic progresses and inform their future planning.

 

Assessment information is integral to our monitoring cycle.  Our monitoring cycle is developed at the beginning of each academic year.  Monitoring in Mathematics includes: lesson observations, book scrutinies and pupil voice.

 

Our Year 5 and 6 children had a visit from HMRC to talk about Tax.

 

Mathematics Learning Walk

Mrs. Taylor, our Chair of Governors and Mr. Keenan visited EYFS, KS1 and KS2 to see all of the wonderful mathematics going on at Lawrence.

 

They saw the children using all kinds of things to help them understand the things being taught in class. Mrs. Taylor was really impressed at how well our children could speak about their mathematics.
