At Raynham Primary School, we strive to enthuse children’s love of math through a creative approach to learning that is rich in making cross-curricular and real-life links so that learning is meaningfully contributing to children’s transferable life skills and love of learning. 

We follow the National Curriculum and the children learn by focusing on the following skills and concepts:

Early Years Framework 2021

At the core of maths is secure knowledge of numbers to 10, including:

  • subitising 
  • 1:1 correspondence
  • patterns, connections, mathematical vocabulary

National Curriculum 2014

At the core of math is:

  • fluency (conceptual understanding)
  • reasoning
  • problems solving (routine and non-routine)
  • developing children’s depths of understanding and mastery of maths

As the children move through our school, their learning and progression are tailored to meet their needs drawing on the following frameworks and approaches:

  • White Rose Hub, NCETM, NRich
  • CPA approach (concrete, pictorial, abstract) and links to intelligent practice
  • Cross-curricular and creative approach
  • developing oracy in Maths and real-life connections in the local environment and the world around them
  • developing times tables and arithmetics skills, including using Rockstars Times Tables and Maths Shed.

Lessons structure varies from EY through to KS2, with mathematical enquiry and vocabulary development in EY predominantly driven through exploration and targeted indoor and outdoor activities, through to Y1 freeflow in Autumn term to allow for transition from EY to KS1. In KS2, lessons include daily timetables and arithmetic practice, a spiral curriculum and teaching of new concepts.
