To provide a Mathematics curriculum which caters for the needs of all children. It will enable children to build on and acquire a deep, long-term, secure understanding of skills that are essential in life.

What an amazing day for our re-launch of TTRockstars! The children, and staff, looked amazing in their rockstar outfits! As you can imagine, everyone loved rocking out! A whole school assembly launched the day with a dance off with the teachers and a competition between Frankie and Mrs. Lord on their times table knowledge!

Many times tables and maths activities were completed throughout the day!

What a day to remember.

Year 4 Mathematics Challenge Day

Brooke, Jessica and Arthur represented our school at the Year 4 Burnley Maths Challenge event held at Brunshaw Primary School. Louis was in the team but unfortunately was ill on the day, which was a shame. We’re glad he’s feeling better now though.

Mrs. McKenna reported on how amazing the children were. A teacher from Brunshaw also commented on how well behaved they were, how beautiful their manners were and what a great job they did.

Well done! We are super proud of you.

Year 2 Mathematics Challenge Day

Year 2 had a great day at the mathematics challenge hosted at Worsthorne. 12 schools came to compete against each other using their skills of arithmetic, logic and problem solving.

What a great effort our children put in. They were so eager from start to finish and we cannot fault there dedication.

The most tense part of the day was the announcement of the top 6 winner who will attend the Final at Burnley Football Club. The first 5 were read and we were not one of them. The children kept their hopes up and BOOM! we were name as the last winner! The children were ecstatic! they jumped up and down and screamed. The best reaction of the day.

Mathematics Challenge Day – Final

Year 2 and 5 went to the finals of the Mathematics Challenge day to Burnley Football Club. Both classes competed against other schools in their year group to see who would be the overall winner out of all the schools.

Year 2 gave it their all, but they were pipped to the winning spots.

Year 5 also gave it their all and persevered through the difficult tasks to become the overall WINNERS of all the schools competing! Yippee!

We cannot fault the dedication from each child and we are amazingly proud of each and every one of them.

Super mathemagicians!

Mathematics
Number ELG
Children at the expected level of development will:
– Have a deep understanding of number to 10, including the composition of each number; Subitise (recognise quantities without counting) up to 5;
– Automatically recall (without reference to rhymes, counting or other aids) number bonds up to 5 (including subtraction facts) and some number bonds to 10, including double facts.
Numerical Patterns ELG
Children at the expected level of development will:
Verbally count beyond 20, recognising the pattern of the counting system;
– Compare quantities up to 10 in different contexts, recognising when one quantity is greater than, less than or the same as the other quantity;
– Explore and represent patterns within numbers up to 10, including evens and odds, double facts and how quantities can be distributed equally.

Key Stage One and Two Mathematics Club

In the Spring Term, The children from Year 1 and 2 and visited Mrs O’Brien’s classroom for 4 weeks each class. They looked at how maths is all around us and learned, most importantly, that maths is fun!

Year 1 – we learned about time, made our own clocks, counted in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s on hopscotch and created a super long shape picture whist discussing the names, size, plus how many corners and edges of each shape.

Year 2 – The children were very interested in some of the maths that Year 5 were learning: Fractions. So, why not start them early with it! Over a few weeks, they worked on fractions of shapes and then fractions of numbers. They were naturals!
