In KS2 Maths, we equip the students with skills that will support them through their school years and beyond, whilst catering to a range of abilities and learning styles that promotes positive mental health and well-being in a nurturing, inclusive environment.
Planning and teaching is underpinned by The White Rose mathematics scheme. Our schemes of work have been developed to increase fluency and develop mathematical reasoning used for Year groups 3, 4, 5 and 6.
KS2 Maths Content+
For each year group, the scheme of learning includes an overview of the maths that your child should be learning at any point in the year. Each year is split into three terms (Autumn, Spring and Summer), and each term comprises individual blocks of learning about a particular topic. To give an example, the Year 4 overview, and Autumn Block 2, focuses on addition and subtraction. We spend lots of time building strong number skills in Key Stage 2. These essential core skills lay a solid foundation for more complicated learning later on.
When children and young people arrive at our setting, they are baselined for their own individual needs. At the beginning and end of each topic all students complete an assessment with an emphasis being placed on identifying any gaps that pupils may have in their mathematical understanding and supporting pupils to overcome these difficulties, especially problems that may arise with number skills. Also, this supports in demonstrating progress throughout the unit of work. The programme of study is individually tailored to ensure that pupils make the progress they are capable of from their individualised starting points.
