The Maths curriculum is delivered using National Curriculum 2014. Maths is taught in five strands: Data Handling, Shape Space and Measue, Number, Calculation and Using and Applying.
At Uplands we provide a daily maths lesson that seeks to reinforce learning and allow children to take on new skills and apply these in a range of contexts. Children are grouped according to ability which allows teachers to target different needs.
The daily maths lesson is structured to include mental skills, teaching points, independent learning and reflection time. Children work individually, in pairs and as a group to solve calculations and problems working in a calculation and problem solving book.
Children are continually assessed through daily evaluations, key objectives on a weekly basis and termly teacher assessments. These assessments inform planning and intervention groups. Children are encouraged to assess their own work and recognise when targets have been achieved.
At Uplands we have "Springboard" intervention groups across all year groups and "Challenge" groups to support class objectives. During the Autumn term children will take part in the challenge afternoons working on their team work and problem solving.
A yearly overview, ensuring continuity and progression informs the half termly medium plans which lead into the weekly plan. These plans are annotated when necessary after assessments to ensure children's learning is moving forward.
Year group overviews are included as downloads in the Curriculum menu under Year group headings.
