At Sticklepath Community Primary Academy we use a scheme called Power Maths. It challenges appropriately in each year group by using a variation approach to learning. This allows children to apply their existing knowledge during the initial discovery of a concept followed by applying new learning in problem solving and reasoning.
We encourage the children to have an initiative and an ability to work both independently and in cooperation with others. We give children the opportunities to explore and find answers of their own, giving them the passion to becoming deep logical mathematicians. We expect our children to justify their conclusions through oral and written methods.
We believe that reinforcement and embedding skills is key to raising standards. For this reason, all children in years 2 to 6 are encouraged to build and retain fluency in securing their times tables through 'Times Tables Rock Stars' at home in readiness for more complex problem solving.
The children are taught in accordance with the National Curriculum; please use the following links to find out more about Sticklepath Maths Intent, Progression and Yearly Overviews for each year group.
