Curriculum Intent:

At Ormiston Meadows Academy, we embed a maths mastery approach. We aim for all pupils to have access to a maths curriculum which meets the needs of all learners. We intend for all children to achieve ‘mastery’ in mathematics, whereby they develop an adaptable and deep understanding of the mathematics being taught. All children will strive for excellence in all that they do: working hard, being their best and ultimately proud of their achievements.

Children will learn to become resilient and develop their self-worth throughout every mathematics lesson when approaching different challenges and being proud of their achievements each time. Our youngest pupils will begin their early mathematical development supported by excellent early mathematical teaching which supports the development of early number sense, giving them the foundational skills needed to confidently reason and solve mathematical problems.

Our intent is for every child to leave Ormiston Meadows Academy as able and independent mathematicians, with the confidence and skills required to calculate fluently, reason confidently and solve problems efficiently using the appropriate mathematical vocabulary, as well as supporting their peers and respecting the mathematical knowledge and ideas they provide.

Curriculum Implementation:

At Ormiston Meadows Academy we follow the scheme White Rose Maths. This scheme supports the teachers in planning and delivering lessons that meet the year group objectives within the National Curriculum. Within White Rose Maths, children are exposed to elements of fluency, reasoning and problem solving as the lessons are designed around these three mathematical elements. All children have access to fluency, reasoning and problem solving as well as opportunities to show greater depth of understanding.

Times Tables:

Children in Years 2-6 have access to Times Tables Rockstars (TT Rockstars). This is an online, fun and challenging programme that is designed to help children master their times tables. Our children at Ormiston Meadows gain much enjoyment, challenging themselves and their peers to develop their fluency of times table knowledge.

Important Dates:

Year 6 KS2 SATs – 13th May to 16th May 2024

Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check – 2 week period from 3rd June 2024
