Maths @ St Andrew’s

Here at St Andrew’s we LOVE Maths!

We believe that Maths is not only essential to everyday life but it is also fun! We support our children to blossom into brilliant mathematicians who can reason, problem solve and be creative in their maths learning.

We teach children to:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • 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

KIRFs- Key Instant Recall Facts

This year (2020-2021) we are introducing KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts) for all children in KS1 and KS2. Each year group has 1 KIRF area to focus on each half term and this will be taught in their maths lessons. We would love it if you could support your child with their quick recall at home and have produced a guide to help you (linked here -> KIRFs @ St Andrew’s)
