For Maths in Key Stage 2 we follow the requirements of Curriculum 2014. The curriculum is separated into Number (counting, place value, calculations and fractions), Geometry (properties of shape and position and direction) and Statistics (collecting information, tally charts, pictograms, bar charts). Throughout the year we will cover all these elements of maths, as well as repeatedly revisiting key areas. The curriculum is appropriately differentiated for each child, ensuring that they are given the opportunities to cover the content of the curriculum in a way that is suitable and meaningful for them. Children are also given opportunities to practise their maths skills in other areas of the curriculum, for example Science or cooking. Wherever possible we use practical resources and technology to further enhance and support the children’s learning. In order to support your child with their learning it may be beneficial to introduce them to maths in ‘real life’ situations – for example telling the time, weighing ingredients for cooking, following directions (using language such as left and right, on, under, top, bottom etc.) or counting money at the shops. If you require any more information about what your child is learning in maths please contact their class teacher.
