In February 2019, we introduced a new mastery led mathematics curriculum at Roby Park. Power Maths is a whole-class mastery programme designed to spark curiosity and excitement and helps teachers to nurture confidence in Maths. It is developed alongside a group of teachers to ensure Power Maths meets all the needs of children. As well as Power Maths, we have set aside a time of the day to focus on fluency and the teaching of key number facts including number bonds, times tables, doubling, halving etc.

Mathematics is central to learning.  Our children lives are full of numbers.  Mathematics also helps them to achieve well in other subjects such as science, computing, history and geography.  It is vital to how our children learn and live.

 

The aim of our curriculum is to ensure that our children master their understanding of Mathematics at their age related expectations.

 

At Roby Park, we aim to develop children who:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including the varied and regular practice of increasingly complex problems over time.
  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, understanding relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
  • Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

Times Tables Rock Stars

Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging programme designed to help students master the times tables! To be a Times Table Rock Star you need to answer any multiplication fact up to 12×12 in less than 3 seconds! Each child will be given a Rock Speed and Status based on how quickly they can answer questions and how many they can answer correctly. The goal is for all participating rockers to be a Times Tables Rock Star after 20 weeks!

 

Each week, Y2-6 children will be awarded badges and certificates for their achievements during Celebration Assemblies

Children in Reception and Y1 will be able to achieve Numbot stickers, certificates and badges, before Y1 move on to TTRs:
