At Laleham C of E School, we are passionate about maths! We aim to develop our children as mathematicians who enjoy engaging with the processes of problem solving over and above the completion of the actual calculations involved. We embed the core skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, realising the importance and application of number in an everyday real life context.
Mental arithmetic is taught as part of every lesson. It is our aim that the children know all of the times tables up to 12 x12 by the end of Year 4. Children are taught a variety of strategies to learn their tables and we encourage parents to help with their learning at home. Children have access to TTRockstars which help embed these number facts and multiplication facts both in school and at home.
We promote the importance of learning the multiplication tables and their related division facts through fun, effective, relevant lessons, celebrating individual achievements along the way. We develop an understanding of shape, data and measures through practical creative lessons, which are often cross-curricular and encourage pupil led investigations. Our teaching of mathematics aims to equip children with the necessary numeracy skills to allow them to use different methods and strategies in everyday life as they continue on their learning journey.
