Mathematics

The mathematics teaching at Roydon Primary Academy is geared towards enabling each pupil to develop within their capabilities; not only the mathematics skills and the understanding required for later life, but also an enthusiasm and fascination about maths itself.

KS1

In KS1, the principal focus of mathematics teaching is to ensure that pupils develop confidence and mental fluency with whole numbers, counting and place value. This involves working with numerals, words and the four operations.

We also aim to develop the children's skills in other mathematical areas such as fractions, geometry, measurement and statistics. 

KS2

In lower KS2 (years 3 and 4) we aim to ensure that pupils become increasingly fluent with whole numbers and the four operations, including number facts and concept of place value. This should develop the children to produce written and mental methods and perform calculations accurately with increasingly large whole numbers.

At this stage, we aim to develop their ability to solve a range of problems, increase their accuracy and develop mathematical reasoning across all areas of mathematics (fractions, measurements, geometry and statistics).

In upper KS2 (years 5 and 6) we aim to ensure that pupils extend their understanding of the number system and place value. This should enable them to develop the connections they need to make between multiplication and division with fractions, decimals, percentages and ratio. 

Throughout this stage we aim to develop pupils ability to solve a wider range of increasingly complex problems, introducing them to the language of algebra as a means for solving a variety of calculations. 

By the end of year 6 we aim to have all children fluent in written methods for all four operations, including long multiplication and division, and in working with fractions, decimals and percentages.

Throughout all of KS2, pupils will complete a weekly skills check to ensure that all mathematical skills and concepts are kept fresh in their heads. As a school, we use these to fill in any mathematical gaps for groups of children by providing them with targets to hit. We also use them as a guide for teaching  areas that need further consolidation. 

Times Tables

Fluency in number through knowledge of place value, the rapid recall of times tables up to 12 (by the end of year 4) and applying this to create related multiplication and division facts is at the heart of our vision.

We aim to increase pupil confidence in maths so they are able to express themselves and their ideas using the language of maths with assurance.

We are continually aiming to raise the standards of achievement of the pupils ast Roydon Primary Academy.
