Through the delivery of our maths curriculum children become fluent in key maths skills and calculation strategies so they can confidently apply those skills in problems solving and reasoning tasks. The curriculum is designed so all national curriculum objectives are covered and revisited and links are made between areas of learning.

A St Charles, we use the ‘White Rose’ Maths Scheme to support in the delivery of our maths learning. Further details of the content for each year group can be found in the maths specific section of our web site, and  by following  the link to White Rose Maths.

Maths is taught in line with the National Curriculum – covering different areas including number, calculation, fractions, statistics and geometry. Teachers ensure they incorporate fluency, reasoning and problem solving into maths lessons to ensure children have an opportunity to apply the skills they have learned in different contexts. The coverage of maths is planned carefully over the year to ensure children access all areas of the maths curriculum.

An outline of the curriculum content for each class can be found in the Maths Curriculum overview below.

At St Charles we use the ‘White Rose Maths Scheme’ as the basis of our Maths Teaching. Further information about the maths curriculum and  the ‘White Rose Scheme’ for parents can be found here.

Resources to support at home

Further information to support your child in Maths with the White Rose Maths  Scheme can be found at:

Times tables are an integral part of the maths learning and link to everything we do. Children complete 99 club challenges in school and are also able to practise time stables using Times table Rockstars

Weekly homework is set using My maths online tool
Your child should bring home their own personal login where they can access the work which is being set.

99 club

Children need to ensure they practise their timestables every day. Each week you can use the 99 club resources to test your child. They have 5 minutes to complete the test. If they get them all right they can progress to the next level. Good luck!

Magic Maths

At school we do a weekly magic maths test and then focus on different areas to improve our skills. See if you can improve your score each week to get through red, yellow and green!
