Here you will find lots of information to help you understand your child’s learning and to support their understanding of Maths when working at home. We hope you find the information useful.
White Rose Maths Scheme
This year we have adopted and implemented the White Rose maths scheme. This approach has a firm belief that, regardless of a child’s starting point, they can achieve and succeed in maths. As a school, we share the same aspirations for our children, and we aim to support them in becoming independent and confident problem solvers, with a breadth of mathematical skills which will support them in their everyday lives.
“Together, we’re building a whole new culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths – a culture that produces strong, secure learning and real progress. No matter what their starting points, we help teachers and learners everywhere to achieve excellence.”
(White Rose Maths Team, 2018)

Please take a look at the new calculations policy. This will be of great benefit in the coming year as new methods and ideas are used by teachers. Please do refer to this when helping your child with their Maths homework. Any problems, or enquiries, please do not hesitate to call in and see the class teacher.
Top tips for success in Maths
- Ensure homework is completed regularly – written mathematics homework as well as completing My Maths tasks.
- Regularly practise number bonds and times tables at home, as this will support our work in school.
- Test your child daily with mental maths questions – this can be done verbally and only takes 5-10 minutes per day.
- If you feel your child, or yourself, needs support in understanding an aspect of their maths work then feel free to ask your child’s class teacher or a member of the maths team.

A big thank you to all parents who are supporting our work in school. If you have any queries regarding the maths curriculum please contact your child’s class teacher or a member of the maths team at school, who will be more than happy to help.
