Maths at Lordship Lane School is taught each day throughout the school. In Key Stage 1 each lesson lasts just over an hour and includes a short arithmetic session; Key Stage 2 start with a 15 minute arithmetic session followed by an hours maths lesson. In Foundation Stage, children have a daily whole class session which lasts for 15 minutes as well as a range of outdoor and indoor focused activities each week. The schools follows the White Rose Hub programme of work, with additional resources from the NCTEM (National Centre for the |Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics) to ensure our children are challenged.
Children learn a range of mental and written calculation methods and they get regular opportunities to use and apply these skills during problem solving activities. Topics include securing number facts, calculating, measuring, understanding shape and data handling.
Wherever possible, maths is integrated into other areas of the Curriculum.
