At Key Stage 1 we follow the National Curriculum 2014 for Mathematics and follow the mastery approach using White Rose planning. All children in Key Stage 1 have daily Mathematics sessions and we consider it to be one of our priorities that children leave school with secure basic skills which will serve them well in the future. To support this we also have dedicated daily mental maths sessions to develop and enhance these key skills. Maths websites to support learning at home are on this website an we encourage the use of Times Tables Rockstars and Hit the Button to reinforce mental maths skills. Children are given homework once a week to reinforce work completed in class.
