Our Mathematics Schemes of Work are written in accordance with the New Curriculum, guidance from the NCETM with particular focus on Mastery Teaching approaches. We are committed to making Maths fun and relevant for pupils and believe that all pupils can achieve high standards in Maths. We aspire to make our Mathematics lessons fun, creative, challenging and interactive within a purposeful environment. Our schemes of work enable the children to develop fluency in mental strategies, mathematical reasoning and practical problem solving activities that are relevant to the world around us. Curriculum topics are designed to enable the children to make connections between topics and in their other subjects, including Maths beyond the classroom. Calculators are used as a teaching tool to develop conceptual understanding, and the use of ICT is used within our lessons to support and challenge the pupils' mathematical ability. Due to the spiraling nature of Mathematics, curriculum topics are repeatedly visited on a frequent basis with each visit building slightly on previous understanding. We ensure that learning is experienced at a level appropriate to the children's abilities with the aim to ensure all pupils achieve high standards. Enrichment activities are provided to challenge and stretch every pupil at Trevelyan and additional support and intervention is given to children who experience difficulties. In September Year 5 children spend two weeks with their form groups taking part in Mathematical practical activities and assessment before being set into groups that will suit their needs.

Key indicators for a student working at the correct age related expectations include: knowing times tables up to 12 x 12, confident when calculating with all four operations, using place value to multiply and divide whole numbers by 10, 100 and 1000, order decimals up to 3 decimal places, use formal written methods where appropriate for the four operations. Solve multi-step word problems, find equivalent fractions and connect these to decimals and percentages. For more information relating to age related expectations please see our Maths Curriculum and Pupil Targets link (year 5). Year 5 receive six daily Maths lessons per week.

Key indicators for a student working at the correct age related expectations include: knowing times tables up to 12 x 12, confident when calculating with all four operations and using known facts to calculate larger numbers, using place value to multiply and divide decimals by 10, 100 and 1000, order decimals of any size, use formal written methods where appropriate for the four operations including long multiplication and long division. Add and subtract fractions with the same or different denominators, cancel down fractions to their simplest form. They should also start to develop their own strategies for solving problems and search for solutions by trying out ideas of their own.
