Maths

Numeracy is a key life skill.  It is a proficiency, which involves confidences and competence with numbers and measures.  It requires an understanding of the number systems, a repertoire of computational skills and an inclination and ability to solve number problems in a variety of contexts.  Numeracy also demands practical understanding of the ways in which information is gathered by counting and measuring and is presented in graphs, diagram, charts and tables.

At Unsworth children are taught numeracy daily in an hourly maths session. Across each week three days are spent on number and two days are spent on shape, space and measures. This allows the children to experience different aspects of numeracy on a regular basis and throughout the week emphasis is placed on children using and applying the skills that they have been taught. Within each class from Year 1 to Year 6 children will receive teaching inputs from their teacher across the week and following on from this they will complete independent tasks to practise, refine or expand the skills/concepts that they have been taught.

Children need to develop their understanding of how to use and apply the four different operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division) in both mental and written forms as they progress through the school. If you click here you can download our calculation policy which sets out how each operation is taught from Reception to Year 6. Below you can click on each operation to download a detailed overview of how it is taught and see examples of what recording methods children are expected to use at different points across school.
