at St Wilfrid's CE Primary School

At St Wilfrid’s we want children to be confident to work with numbers; to have a fluent knowledge of arithmetic; develop the ability to reason with number and also to use known mathematical facts clearly and concisely by explaining their reasoning of mathematical problems.

By the time children leave St Wilfrid’s and start their next stage of learning, children are confident with maths; they have become numerate and enjoy working with number.  Children understand the importance of maths; the application of the skills they have learnt and applying this into other areas of the curriculum and in their everyday life.

How Do We Teach Maths?

Each daily maths lesson sees children practise their fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills through teacher modelling, specific questioning and independent practice. Children are encouraged to take responsibility for improving their rapid recall of times tables and related division facts at home through the use of Times Tables Rock Stars (more information below) as well as weekly times tables practice, along with a weekly arithmetic test.
