Welcome To The Mathematics Page
My name is Mrs. Ashworth and I am the subject leader for mathematics. I have recently taken over the role, after leading science for a number of years. I am passionate about numeracy and ensuring that the pupils at St Paul's gain the confidence and skills to be able to use mathematics in the wider world. As it states in the national curriculum aim for mathematics, this subject is essential for most careers and for our pupils to become confident, successful adults. For them to achieve their goals in life, they must become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, they must have the determination and perseverance to tackle problem solving and they must be able to apply mathematics to suitable situations in their real life.
Mathematical knowledge is used in many areas of the curriculum: science, music, physical education, geography and history are some examples. Pupils will be encouraged to use prior knowledge and skills to increase their mathematical ability and tackle mathematics challenges independently.
As a school, we are currently introducing the new Red Rose Mastery Mathematics scheme. Our staff are having continuous professional development and are being supported by the Lancashire Mathematics advisory service to ensure that we have high expectations for our pupils and are providing the best mathematics learning possible.
Below you will find a number of documents that will give you lots of information about what our pupils will be learning throughout the school year. The mathematical expectations for each year group are shown below and our calculations policies are included so that parents can see what methods are being taught in school and how they progress from EYFS to Y6.
Below are links to mathematics webpages and games that are the teachers' favourites. Your child should be familiar with most of them.
