Aims

The National Curriculum for Mathematics (2014) aims for pupils to:

• become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils have conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately to problems
• reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
• solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

Mathematics at Brook Community Primary School:

In line with the New National Curriculum (2014) each year group have particular mathematics skills that must be embedded by the end of the academic year. Problem solving is at the heart of our teaching, broadening children’s knowledge and encouraging them to relate their learning to real life situations. A good knowledge of numbers or a ‘feel’ for numbers is the product of structured practice and repetition. It requires an understanding of number patterns and relationships developed through directed enquiry, use of models and images and the application of acquired number knowledge and skills.

Please see below to see progression for each year group in the new mathematics curriculum

Year 1

 NUMBER Number and place value count to and across 100, forwards and backwards, beginning with 0 or 1, or from any given number count, read and write numbers to 100 in numerals; count in multiples of twos, fives and tens given a number, identify one more and one less identify and represent numbers using objects and pictorial representations including the number line, and use the language of: equal to, more than, less than (fewer), most, least read and write numbers from 1 to 20 in numerals and words Addition and subtraction read, write and interpret mathematical statements involving addition (+), subtraction (-) and equals (=) signs represent and use number bonds and related subtraction facts within 20 add and subtract one-digit and two-digit numbers to 20 , including zero solve one-step problems that involve addition and subtraction, using concrete objects and pictorial representations, and missing number problems such as 7 = ?  – 9 Multiplication and division solve one-step problems involving multiplication and division, by calculating the answer using concrete objects, pictorial representations and arrays with the support of the teacher Fractions recognise, find and name a half as one of two equal parts of an object, shape or quantity recognise, find and name a quarter as one of four equal parts of an object, shape or quantity MEASUREMENT compare, describe and solve practical problems for: lengths and heights (e.g. long/short, longer/shorter, tall/short, double/half) mass or weight (e.g. heavy/light, heavier than, lighter than) capacity/volume (full/empty, more than, less than, quarter) time (quicker, slower, earlier, later) measure and begin to record the following: lengths and heights mass/weight capacity and volume time (hours, minutes, seconds)   recognise and know the value of different denominations of coins and notes sequence events in chronological order using language such as: before and after, next, first, today, yesterday, tomorrow, morning, afternoon and evening recognise and use language relating to dates, including days of the week, weeks, months and years tell the time to the hour and half past the hour and draw the hands on a clock face to show these times GEOMETRY Properties of shapes recognise and name common 2-D and 3-D shapes, including:§  2-D shapes (e.g. rectangles (including squares), circles and triangles) 3-D shapes (e.g. cuboids (including cubes), pyramids and spheres) Position and direction describe position, directions and movements, including half, quarter and three-quarter turns
