“As Jesus is the light of the world, we shine to show His light and love.”
Maths Intent Statement
In the love and light of God, at St Nicholas CE Primary Academy, we aim to promote a love of mathematics by providing our children with opportunities to practise and apply their understanding of maths in a variety of questions; giving them the best opportunity to shine their light.
In line with the National Curriculum, at St Nicholas CE Primary Academy we are following the White Rose Scheme of learning which promotes a balanced approach to fluency, problem-solving and reasoning. We believe all three areas of mathematics are necessary to develop and provide rich opportunities for our learners and leaders to flourish.
We provide our learners with a range of these types of questions on a daily basis in order to challenge everyone and strengthen the relationship between mathematical understanding and mathematical application and reasoning to create masters in maths.
We believe the understanding and recall of division and multiplication underpin large areas of maths and form a crucial foundation for future success and enjoyment of maths. Therefore, we promote the use of Times Table Rock Stars for all of our learners from Year 2 and above to create a fun and interactive way to engage with times tables and division facts. EYFS and Year 1 provide a rich, number heavy environment to allow children to immerse themselves in number; providing the best platform for future understanding.
We are currently 2nd in the Boston area for Times Table Rock Stars! Can we close the gap and become number 1?
