The New National Curriculum for maths has been taught across the school since September 2014. From September 2018 we will be following the White Rose Maths scheme of work which breaks down the curriculum for each year group into smaller topics. These topics will be taught through the three aims of fluency skills, reasoning and problem solving, differentiated to provide appropriate challenge to all children. It also looks at different ways to represent calculations with a focus on using the Bar Model.
The yearly overview for each year group will give you an outline of the topics taught (there may be changes to the overview to meet the needs of each individual class).
Mathematical learning at Coopers Lane has a purpose and includes real life, practical activities which challenge mathematical thinking and allow children to move through targets and progress at a personal rate in their daily learning.
Download our calculation policy here. These will show you the strategies we use to teach the four operations of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, and how the learning progresses as the children deepen their understanding.
Here are some great websites to help with all areas of Maths.

We use a system of assessment across the school with the support of Target Tracker. The new curriculum has been broken down into a set of expectations for each year group and these are called bands. Each band has a set of statements detailing the age related expectation for the year group. We will be using these statements to help us assess how the children are progressing throughout the year. You can download the band statements below.
