The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all Barnabas Oley pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • can 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

Year Group Teaching

Both staff and children have enjoyed three sessions of year group maths this spring term.

KS1 have been working on measure and KS2 on shape.

During these hands on practical learning sessions, children have had the opportunity to work with their Year group in small cohorts whilst getting to know different staff members. There has been much enthusiasm, excitement and great learning seen during these engaging lessons.
