At St Joseph’s, we are pleased to be following the White Rose Maths scheme to support our teaching and learning. This has successfully been rolled out to all Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 classes. This scheme allows us to develop each child’s fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills and allows greater understanding of the mathematical concepts that are taught.
To support our children, we have subscribed to Mymaths and Times Tables Rockstars with children having their own unique usernames and passwords to access these online programs. We would strongly recommend that children use these regularly at home and at school to improve their mathematics.
In Year 4 in 2020, there will be a a times tables test for all children set by the department for education. In preparation for this, Times Tables Rockstars makes learning their tables fun and at St Joseph’s we have weekly competitions between our hose groups, with the highest scoring children earning a certificate and celebrated during assembly.
