The subject leader for Maths at St James' is Mrs Bibby.
At St. James' we work hard to meet the aims of all three areas of the National Curriculum:
We make sure that we cover all three aspects in every lesson and support our learning through using practical methods and concrete resources to help us understand Maths.
In Year 2 - Year 6, we use Times Tables Rock Stars to help us become more fluent in our times table knowledge. We have our own log in and we can practise at home! If you need any help logging into your account, just ask your teacher to help.
Snapshot of Maths
There have been lots of changes in Maths recently, as Mrs Bibby and Mrs Malik have been attending meetings with other teachers from other schools to discuss how we can improve maths at St. James'. We are moving towards a mastery approach at St. James' which we hope will mean that our children will gain more confidence and understanding in all areas of Mathematics. Mastery means taking small steps in our learning, so we are fully confident before moving our learning on. It also means focusing on fluency and reasoning, using different representations, seeing different images and answering different types of questions.
