Overview Awareness of the New Primary Maths Curriculum and key changes in Year Groups 3, 4 and 5 Links to the School Calculation Policy- How do we teach the national requirements? Practical Ways to support your child at home Maths Home Support Sheets How Abacus online can be used at home as an additional tool for your child to develop their learning

What is the New Maths Curriculum?
The Primary National Curriculum has recently been rewritten by the Department for Education. The New Primary Curriculum became statutory for maintained primary schools in September 2014. This has resulted in a number of changes to maths teaching at Warfield CE Primary School. Our Maths and Calculation Policies have been rewritten to make way for these changes. The Primary Curriculum this is available on the Department for Education Website at the address below:

Overview of the New Curriculum
By the end of Year… your child should be able to do…. Tables to 12x12 to be learnt earlier Higher Expectations Earlier introduction of standard units of measurement Focus on fractions Larger Numbers earlier Roman numerals from Year 3 upwards Earlier introduction of formal written methods All objectives are set by Year Group.

Key Changes in Year 3 3, 4 and 8 times tables (8x table used to be a Y4 objective) Column addition and subtraction Add and order simple fractions: including counting up and down in tenths, adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator For example: 5/7 + 1/7= 6/7 Measure and compare length, mass and volume including the perimeter of 2D shapes Use Roman numerals on a clock from I to XII and tell the time using 24 hour clocks.

Key Changes in Year 4 All tables up to 12x12
Count in multiples of 6,7, 9, 25 and 1000. Order and compare numbers beyond 1000. Read Roman numerals to 100 (I to C) Add and subtract numbers up to 4-digits using the formal written methods Standard column multiplication Add and subtract fractions Count up and down in hundredths and recognise that hundredths arise when dividing a number by 100 Name acute and obtuse angles, compare and order angles by size

Key Changes in Year 5 Round any number up to to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, and Read Roman numerals to 1000 (M) Know which numbers are prime and composite (non-prime) Recognise and use square numbers Read write and order numbers up to 3 decimal places Short division method Use mixed numbers Expressing a division answer as a mixed number rather than a remainder 432 ÷ 5 = 86 and 2/5 (See Calculation Policy)

Teach at a level appropriate to your child’s next steps
What will we do at school? Teach at a level appropriate to your child’s next steps Use practical resources to make lessons engaging Make lessons relevant to children’s experiences and link to real life Mental maths activities that develop children’s mathematical thinking e.g. Developing the 3x table to the 30x table

End of Year Attainment This year you will still be given a level that your child is working at. Year 6 are still following the ‘old’ SATS this year. The end of Year 6 expected level is a Level 4; we have many children hoping to achieve beyond this. Where children have a specific learning difficulty in maths further support will be put in place by the class teacher and other adults in school to help these children make progress.

Maths Assessment in school We are currently monitoring and assessing children’s mental maths on a half termly basis. Children take a short written assessment at the end of every half term. We are using this to target children who need further support.

What Can I do at home to help. Count, count and count
What Can I do at home to help? Count, count and count! Quick times table games- NIM- Let’s play! You will need a partner and 12 sweets (or counters if you have eaten the sweets!) You can take one or two counters at a time saying a multiple of the times table you are learning each time. For example: First player: “3,6” Second Player: “9” First Player “12,15” and so on… The winner is the person who says 12x the number. Extension- Going backwards! The winner takes 1x the number. Try Verbal NIM- can be done anywhere! or a timed Challenge- how quickly can you say the multiples?

Further ideas… Card games with times tables- Turn a card over a ask a times table question with that number. If it is correct you win the card. Random questions for picture cards. Timetable squares and L shapes Ask your child to use a highlighter to identify x table facts Spotting Roman numerals, angles, shapes, units of measure and asking questions on a daily basis Weekly Suggestions and coverage of what your child will be learning at school is in the Maths Home Support Sheet for your child’s year group. This is available on our website.

How does my child use Abacus to support their learning
How does my child use Abacus to support their learning? Abacus games and activities are added regularly by teachers to support the learning that has been happening in the classroom. For example: If learning on the 4x table has occurred a game or activity on this will be added. Teachers can decide on different activities and games for all pupils: so your child’s activities can be tailored to their needs. Test Login: test School code: warf

Thank you for attending tonight
Thank you for attending tonight. Please continue to support your child’s maths learning at home to reinforce what we are doing in school. Please come and speak to me if you have any further questions. Mrs Clarie Exton, Maths Subject Leader, Warfield CE Primary
