Aims The national Curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils; Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practise with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language. Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
Have good mental ability in mathematics. Rapid recall of addition subtraction facts. Rapid recall of multiplication and division facts. Fact families 3+4=7 3x5=15 4+3=7 5x3=15 7-3=4 15÷5=3 7-4=3 15÷3=5
Be an independent problem solver Identifying the problem. Choosing a starting place. Use efficient methods. Make links between aspects of learning. Communicate thinking effectively. Recognise that there may be multiple possibilities and exhausts them. Learn from mistakes and correct chosen path.
How will the new curriculum effect my child? Phased introduction to prepare children for new assessment material in 2016. Current yearWhen learning from new curriculum will begin ReceptionYear 1 - 2014 Year 1Year 3 - 2015 Year 2Year 3 - 2014 Year 3January 2014 Year 4January 2014 Year 5Year 7 Year 6Year 7
What’s new? Vocabulary End of year expectations have been altered (these will be posted on the website from January) A return to the ‘old fashioned’ ways!
How can I help my child? Have a positive view of mathematics. Be a model mathematician. Help them make links. Help them find starting places in problem solving. Allow them to get things wrong. Encourage explanations. Help them learn facts.
Let’s try some problem solving! 1, 9 …... 1, …... 9 … is next because ….. 1, …... …… 9 1, …... …… …… 9
