Loving All Our Neighbours

Mathematics

Welcome to Maths!

The government says that as well as being critical for everyday life, knowledge of multiplication tables helps children to solve problems quickly and flexibly, and allows them to tackle more complex mathematics later on in school.

This is why all pupils at All Saints have been assigned a login for the TTRS website.

We also follow the Abacus scheme, which teaches maths via the Mastery approach. 

The Mastery approach originates from Singapore and follows the idea that the class only moves on to the next lesson when the majority have 'mastered' the particular skills involved. 

Maths is part of our daily lives and you can practise mental arithmetic where ever you are! 

Here are just a few ideas for practising maths at home:

  • Revise times tables facts and related division
  • Roll a dice to generate numbers for mental addition, subtraction, multiplication and division
  • Calculate the total bill in a shop or at a restaurant
  • Play games on reputable websites like My Maths, Abacus and Purple Mash
  • Wear a watch and tell someone the time throughout the day
  • Measure ingredients for baking  
  • Estimate journey lengths and times when you go on holiday
  • Read bus and train timetables

 

Here are some Purple Mash maths games, as recommended by Y6 pupils:

Bond Bubbles/ Number Bond Mixture - number bonds

2 Race - the four operations

Sequence Snake - number patterns

Dividers - multiples 

Factoroids - factors 

Fractions Pizzeria - fractions 

Fraction Wall - equivalent fractions

 

For a new idea on how to practise number facts, see the Clock Times Tables tutorial in the Video Resource Centre (under the 'Children' tab).
