Here at Kew Riverside, Maths is given a high priority. It is a core subject of the National Curriculum and a tool for everyday life. It teaches children to make sense of the world around them through developing their ability to calculate, to reason and to problem solve.
At Kew Riverside children develop skills, confidence and competence with numbers and measures. They cultivate an understanding of the number system and an ability to solve number problems in a variety of contexts. Mathematics also demands practical understanding of measurement, graphs, diagrams, charts and tables. At the heart of our Mathematics is the ability to calculate mentally.
Pupils who grasp concepts rapidly are challenged with rich and sophisticated problems before any acceleration through new content. Those who are not sufficiently fluent with basic skills are given opportunities to consolidate their understanding before moving on.
Each year group covers a number of objectives in each domain over the course of the school year. The links below show an overview of each domain covered in each year group to help give you an idea of how to help support your child at home.
**Please note that sometimes this overview will change slightly to ensure pupils access all areas of the curriculum and are confident and secure in their key skills. **
