At Trinity road, we believe that maths builds essential life skills and all opportunities to develop these should be taken in discrete maths lessons, as well as throughout the rest of the curriculum.
All maths learning objectives at Trinity Road are taken from the current national curriculum. The whole school follows a yearly plan that is broken down into topics to ensure that all aspects of the curriculum are covered. Please see the document below to view the overview of topics for your child’s year group.
We use a practical approach to the teaching and learning of maths based on the CPA approach to learning (Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract). Please see the document below to find out more about the CPA approach. In daily lessons, all children attempt a main challenge in line with expectations for their year group and then move to deepening their understanding with a greater depth challenge. Some children may also move on to an ultimate challenge to extend them further. Problem solving, reasoning and explaining are also key to our approach to developing mathematicians and we are always looking for new and exciting ways to explore this aspect of maths.
Basic skills such as knowing number bonds and times tables are important. Children’s progress in learning their times tables and related division facts follows the National expectations for each year group. Please see the document below for ways to support your child at home with the relevant times tables and basic skills resources for their year group.
Maths workshops were held during the Autumn term 2016 which were well attended and gave lots of positive feedback about this approach.
