At St.Oswald's we aim to ensure that pupils become confident and inquisitive mathematicians. We place a large emphasis upon number skills to ensure that pupils are able to add, subtract, multiply and divide using mental and written methods. Pupils are also encouraged to learn their multiplication and division facts. Each child has a multiplication card from Year 2 onwards.  They will be awarded Bronze, Silver and Gold for their knowledge and understanding in their timestables. All children should know rapid recall of multiplication and division facts up to 12 x 12 by Year 4.  

Alongside this, we develop pupils' mathematical thinking, reasoning and problem solving skills.

We support children in their learning by providing them with opportunities to:

  • use concrete objects and/or act out an idea or skill
  • use visual, pictorial representations e.g. bar models to represent problems
  • use abstract representation - the symbolic stage where there is an understanding of formal methods

Resources we use for Maths:

  • Abacus online scheme and resources
  • Assertive Mentoring Maths Assessments
  • White Rose Maths Hub (for children working at Greater Depth)
  • NCTM (for children working at Greater Depth)
  • Nrich maths
  • IXL - Each child has their own log in for regular practise
  • TT Rockstars - (Times Tables Rock Stars) is an online programme of daily times tables practise which has very successfully boosted times tables recall speed for lots of our pupils.

Children have been given individual log ins for TT Rockstars, Abacus and IXL to use at home to support learning. If you are unsure of your child's log in please inform you child's class teacher.
