Maths

At Wembley Primary School, we want every child to achieve their best by offering a sequential, structured, challenging and fun curriculum. We want our children to leave with fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills, which will help them in real life situations.

 We have a number of teaching videos which demonstrate different arithmetic skills.  These are suitable for Year 5 and 6 students to prepare them for the Arithmetic Test.  Come back and check for more videos.

Our curriculum ensures coverage of the different areas of maths with number at the heart of it. Over the course of a week, children are taught number for three days, another area of mathematics for one day (such as Geometry) and on the final day the explicit teaching of problem solving skills. Teachers and pupils engage in quality maths talk which develops mathematical language, deepens learning and enables teachers to address misconceptions quickly and effectively. The needs of our pupils inform our lessons and each child’s needs are catered for. Through the use of concrete resources and pictorial representations all children are supported to enable them to work abstractly.

Teachers have access to a wide range of resources to support subject knowledge, planning and assessment of the maths curriculum.

We want our children to see mathematics as a subject which runs through the other areas of the curriculum. Parents engage with their child’s mathematical learning through workshops, home learning tasks and class visits. By the time the children leave Wembley Primary, they will see the significance and purpose of mathematics in their everyday lives.
