If you have any questions regarding the curriculum we teach, please contact the school office directly and the office staff will pass your enquiry on to the relevant Curriculum Leader.

All teaching in mathematics follows the New Curriculum and is supported by resources produced by the NCETM.  Children are taught in a variety of ways and the aim is for them to master concepts and objectives and obtain a deep understanding of these. Children are encouraged to develop their skills through a range activities and can make use of a wide variety of concrete, pictorial and written resources to help with their progress in the subject. 

Initially, children are encouraged to explore and learn about the subject in a practical way.  Over time, they move on to more formal methods. Children in KS1 use Numbots to consolidate their number skills. In KS2, children use Times Tables Rockstars to ensure they have a good understanding of multiplication facts. As well as homework set by their teacher, children can access a variety of games and activities at any time. 

The following documents show the progression of objectives and skills that children will learn across each strand of mathematics during their time at St Michael's.   
The document below details the mathematical vocabulary that children will learn during their time at St Michael's and which year group they will learn it in.
