At Ramsey Junior School, we teach maths through a variety of strands of knowledge.
✦ Number – Place Value
✦ Number – Addition and Subtraction
✦ Number – Multiplication and Division
✦ Number – Fractions (including decimals and percentages)
✦ Geometry – Properties of Shape
✦ Geometry – Position and Direction
✦ Ratio and Proportion (Year 6)
✦ Algebra (Year 6)
We aim for the children to become increasingly fluent with whole numbers and the four
operations, including times tables and the concept of place value. This should then
ensure that the children can perform calculations accurately and that they should
develop efficient written and mental methods. Through a range of reasoning and
problem solving activities, children should then experience solving puzzles which
include simple fractions and decimal place value. Teaching will enable children to
analyse shapes and their properties, and confidently describe a range of properties. It
should ensure that they can use measuring instruments with accuracy and make
connections between measure and number. With this foundation in arithmetic, children
are introduced to the language of algebra as they go through Key Stage 2, as a means
for solving a variety of problems. Teaching in geometry and measures should
consolidate and extend knowledge developed in number. Through games, ICT activities, sorting and solving problems, children then classify shapes with increasingly
complex geometric properties and learn the vocabulary they need to describe them.
