Maths focus

Shared Vision for Maths

Maths is a core life skill and at Street Lane Primary School we believe that the teaching of maths should equip all of our pupils with the necessary skills and knowledge to ensure their future success.

At Street Lane, we believe that fluency and arithmetic skills should be regularly practised in order for them to be mastered. Alongside this, children will develop their problem solving skills and gain a deeper understanding of mathematics.

We have an agreed calculation policy that is shared with parents to enable them to support their child’s learning and with homework.

Maths Learning and Events

Counting in the Ducklings Class

During this first term in school, our Ducklings have been learning to represent numbers to 10 in many different ways. We have practised careful counting, making sure that we point to each object and we are now moving onto ordering numbers and exploring one more than.

Y3/4 Maths – Place Value – September 2022

Owl Class have been using manipulatives to consolidate their place value work.

To put some of our place value skills into practice Owl class created their own number line. The year 4s then had to round their numbers to the nearest 10 and 100.

Y1/2 Maths – Place Value – Comparing and Sorting Groups – September 2022

This week in the Puffin classroom, the children have been using visual objects (cubes and counters) to consolidate and deepen our understanding of comparing and sorting groups. 

Y5/6 Maths – Place Value Counters – September 2022

To consolidate and deepen our understanding of the formal written methods for addition and subtraction, Peacock Class used place value counters to model the steps in solving the calculations.

World Maths Day 2022

To celebrate World Maths Day the Ducklings and Parrots class explored Mathematics in stories. The Ducklings read the story Rosie’s Walk and practised using the different positional language in the book by making our own farm using the den building equipment. We crawled under the bee hives, jumped in the pond, walked around the haystack and in front and behind the hen houses. We had a lovely time learning in the sunshine! 

The Parrots read ‘How Many Seeds are in a Pumpkin?’ This story has lots of Maths in it so we talked about size, capacity, estimating, grouping and counting in steps of 2, 5 and 10. The children practised grouping objects and then counting in steps of 2, 5 and 10 to find the total.

March 2022 – Year 6 – Area and Perimeter with Starbursts!

To practise finding the area and perimeter of compound shapes, year 6 worked with a partner using starbursts to create their shapes. They used different colours to show how the shape can be partitioned. They then drew and labelled their shapes using cm2 paper and found the area and perimeter.

Tough Ten with the Parrots

Our Year One children have been learning about place value to 50 and are now feeling really confident with recognising different representations of numbers to 50. During our Tough Ten time we practised counting tens and ones and matching the amount to the correct numeral representation using a game on the I-Pads. Some children even challenged themselves to match numbers to 100. Well done everyone!

Number Day in Owl Class

Owls spent the first part of number day playing some maths board games against each other. These were focused on some of the maths skills we had practised recently in our lessons. It got extremely competitive!

Puffins – Number Day!

This Tuesday, the Puffins celebrated Number Day by using the outdoor tyres from our den building objects to divide by 2, 5 and 10. We really enjoyed this.

Peacocks – Circles

As part of our geometry work, Peacock class learnt about the parts of a circle before learning how to use a compass to draw different circles, semi-circles and sectors with specified measurements.

Owls playing games during maths lessons! – January 2022

Owls used their knowledge of place value to participate in games ordering 3 and 4 digit numbers. They also used a random number generator to try and form the highest and then the lowest number possible.
