Maths at Oakworth Primary School is taught daily in a discrete lesson and through a mental arithmetic session. The teaching and learning is based on the National Curriculum and is supported by the teaching of mental arithmetic skills and our calculation policy. We ensure that our children are proficient in their use of mathematical vocabulary and that they become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics. Our aim is to give them the ability to solve problems, to reason, to think logically and to work systematically. Our curriculum encourages children’s positive attitudes towards the subject and makes them aware of the relevance of mathematics in the real world.
TT Rock Stars
Times Tables Rock Stars is a series of carefully sequenced activities of daily times tables practice. When it comes to times tables, speed and accuracy are important – the more facts your child remembers, the easier it is for them to complete harder calculations. Times Table Rock Stars is fun and challenging and is designed to help pupils master the times tables. For children in Year 2 and above, they will have passwords that they can use to access their TT Rockstars account.
