"Where a love of learning grows"

  1. Our Curriculum
  2. Mathematics



‚ÄčIn our school our Christian Values shapes all we do. We pride ourselves on applying our Christian Values to ensure Upton Snodsbury CofE First School is a place where a love of learning grows.

At Upton Snodsbury CofE First School, our maths curriculum is designed to provide children with the opportunities to:

  • Develop their mathematical fluency through a concrete, pictorial and abstract (CPA) approach.
  • Apply their understanding to be able to solve problems
  • Explain their reasoning when finding solutions to mathematical problems
  • Apply mathematics to every day life situations

Nurturing mathematical skills from an early age will set the children on the road to lifelong learning of key mathematical concepts. Mathematics is vital to everyday life as well as science and technology learning. The high-quality teaching of mathematics at our school, provides children with the ability to explore, reason and understand maths. Mathematics provides a foundation for understanding the world and gives a sense of a love for learning and curiosity. It offers pupils the opportunity to develop their love for learning through a broad range of creative and exciting experiences


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

 - Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including the varied and regular practice of increasingly complex problems over time.       

 - Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, understanding relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.             

-Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

Rainbow Rapid Recall Checks 

Children in Snowy Owls and Barn Owls complete a weekly test focussing on number bonds, multiplication and division. The aim of these checks are to support children with their mathematical fluency and rapid recall. By the end of Y4, children are expected to know up to 12 x 12.
