Masters of Maths!

Thank you to everyone who got involved with the 'Masters of Maths' challenge. We had so many different ideas from finding pairs of socks and looking at odd and even numbers in Reception to organising a holiday in Year 6. You have all helped to prove that maths is everywhere and that we can have lots of fun using maths in different ways. You really have proven yourselves as Master of Maths!!!

Have a look at the photos and try to think about what maths skills are required for each activity demonstrated. Why not try some of these at home too?

We Are Mathematicians!

Together, we can build a whole new culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths – a culture that produces strong, secure learning and real progress.

No matter what their starting points, everyone can do maths!

As we develop this positive mental attitude towards maths, we’re shaping assured, happy and resilient mathematicians who relish the challenge of maths.

They become independent, reflective thinkers, whose skills not only liberate them in maths but also support them across the curriculum.

Parents, how can you help your child with maths at home?

  • Have the mindset that ‘Everyone can do maths!’, because it's true! It just takes practise like anything else that we learn to do. We're not born being good or bad at maths - I promise!
  • Be positive about maths and demonstrate the purpose of it in our daily lives.
  • Encourage them not to be afraid to have a go and make mistakes because this is how we learn - a challenge is a good thing so help them to embrace it. 
  • Ask them to tell you/ show you what they have learnt today in school; if they can explain it or demonstrate it to someone else then they are much more likely to remember it in future. 
  • Experience maths in real life as much as you can – measure, time, money, fractions (food)… 
  • Play games that involve counting, calculating or problem solving. 
  • Ask them quick fire questions to check their mental arithmetic (in a fun way) - times tables come into so many different areas of maths, so if you do additional practise of these at home then that it will have a huge impact in school.

Thank you for all of your support.  

Maths is everywhere...

Maths as adults

Maths does not have to be sitting at a table and completing calculations!

Maths is everywhere and we use maths constantly; sometimes without realising it.

Try to be more aware of how often you use maths in your day to day life...money, time and measure (especially in the kitchen) are the most common ones but see what else you can think of!
