We love Maths at Joseph Turner Primary!
At Joseph Turner Primary, we have devised 4 Maths strategy booklets that the teachers and pupils use to cement in place strategies that will support Maths skill acquisition. The booklets are set out into 4 key areas - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division - and show different strategies that will be taught to the children during their Maths lessons. There are also problem solving and reasoning suggestions in the booklets that will support the application of skill to different contexts.
Mastering Number - Reception, Year 1 and Year 2
At Joseph Turner, teachers in Reception and KS1, deliver a daily session of 10 to 15 minutes in addition to their daily math's lesson of Mastering Number. This is a new programme offered in 2021/22 by the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM). It aims to develop solid number sense, including fluency and flexibility with number facts, which will have a lasting impact on future learning for all children. The aim over time is that children will leave KS1 with fluency in calculation and a confidence and flexibility with number.
