Maths at Park Junior School

We continue to develop mathematical thinking throughout the school as we encourage the children to problem solve and find independent pathways to answers. Maths is an exciting subject and this can be seen in the classrooms with children enjoying the challenges they are given and as they  are introduced to the rich variety of mathematical experiences available to them.

This year sees the continuation of the New Curriculum introduced by the government. We will continue with our approach to the curriculum developed over the last few years, and the New Curriculum will continue to be embedded with new content and higher expectations part of our planning this year. We are giving dedicated time to the arithmetic skills across the year groups which in turn, enable to focus on depth of learning across the rest of the maths curriculum. Tables are also a very important focus as they are the foundation to so much of the maths curriculum.

Our aim continues to be one in which we can create a competent and confident mathematician who enjoys the subject, approaching it with enthusiasm and strong motivation.

Our  SATs results for maths have been fabulous this year especially with our greater depth achievement. These wonderful results are testament to the hard work all our children put into their maths and the fabulous opportunities they are given.

IT plays an important part in our maths curriculum and as a school, we have subscribed to 'Mymaths' and 'Maths Frame', web based maths sites and all children have access to these at both school and home. We fully recommend that Mymaths is used at home to reinforce learning in school or to help children understand their maths and rise to new challenges.  Log in details will be in the children's handbooks. We also now regularly use maths apps on our I pads and other web based resources.
