School Closure- Remote Learning Opportunities for Mathematics

 

Hopefully, this gives you an array of online resoures which you can access at any point.

 

Reception/ KS1 / KS2 Lessons

 

* The Round House staff use White Rose for planning our lessons so this would be the best resource to give children consistency with their learning at school. If you click on the link and choose the correct year group of your child, it gives a lesson, activity and answers.

There are also White Rose 'Problems of the Day', which would be great for the children's reasoning and problem solving skills.

If there is a specific gap in your child's learning, this is a fantastic website to help plug their gaps. This website also has a video, activities and answers.

You can also access the daily lessons on BBCBitesize. Just choose the year group, then subject. There are a range of videos to support learning with activities attached. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons

 

Live streams:

https://www.themathsfactor.com/ - Live lessons from Carol Vorderman

 

This is another great website with strong visual images, videos and free resources to promote problem solving and deeper mathematical thinking. www.iseemaths.com/home-lessons/

 

Maths Games - Websites

TT Rockstars and Numbots are fantastic resources for learning your number bonds and time tables. If you practise little and often, you WILL get better. These can also be downloaded as apps on Ipads or phones.

 

TT Rockstars - Year 2 to 6 - https://ttrockstars.com/

Numbots - Reception to Year 2 - https://play.numbots.com/#/account/school-login-type

 

Hit the button - brilliant game for quick number bonds/ times tables/ doubles/ halves recall.

General Information about Maths at Round House

 

If young people are to become powerful citizens with full control over their lives then they need to be able to reason mathematically – to think logically, compare numbers, analyse evidence, and reason with numbers. Mathematics classrooms need to catch up – not only to help future employers and employees, or even to give students a taste of authentic mathematics, but to prepare young people for the rest of their lives.’  Jo Boaler

 

           

 

        

 

    


Our Rationale

The children are provided with a variety of opportunities to develop and extend their mathematical skills in and across each phase of education.

 

The teaching of mathematics at The Round House Primary Academy provides opportunities for:

• work at their own ability level;

• work in pairs and in small and large groups

• work in the areas of number, measures, shape, space and data handling;

• use calculators and computers;

• use a wide range of mathematical tools/instruments;

• rehearse mental strategies and skills.

 

Pupils engage in:

• the development of mental strategies;

• written methods;

• practical work ;

• investigational work;

• problem solving;

• mathematical discussion;

• consolidation of basic skills and number facts;

 

At The Round House Primary Academy we recognise the importance of establishing a secure foundation in mental calculation and recall of number facts before standard written methods are introduced.

Mathematics contributes to many subjects and it is important the children are given opportunities to apply and use Mathematics in real contexts. Mathematics is used in other curriculum areas wherever possible or appropriate. This helps to expand and consolidate mathematical concepts, using maths in a purposeful way in everyday contexts helps the children to realise that mathematics is important in the real world.

We endeavour at all times to set work that is challenging, motivating and encourages the pupils to talk about what they have been doing.

 

Aims

Our aim is to help each pupil develop as far as possible the knowledge, skills and understanding in mathematics which will be required in further study and adult life. All staff have high expectations for all our pupils so they can:

 

  • Be fluent in their number bonds to 20 and times tables up to 12 x 12 and apply them to real-life situations.
  • Develop a curiosity for mathematics
  • Problem solve effectively
  • Work together to become better mathematicians
  • All achieve in Maths
  • Explain their working
  • Be active mathematicians

 

Below you will find a range of information to assist your children with the learning of maths at home.  Our calculation progression policies show you how the children will progress their learning from practical towards written methods, and our key learning guide highlights what is expected of each child within each year group.
