Mathematics at Ghyllgrove Primary School
At Ghyllgrove Primary School, we want to provide a fun, engaging and relevant Mathematics curriculum, which promotes the development of confident, independent and efficient mathematicians. By the end of their time at Ghyllgrove Primary School, we aim to have developed mathematically fluent children who enjoy the challenge of Mathematics, have a solid understanding of fundamental mathematical skills and have mastered a set of skills that will support them throughout life. Through daily Maths lessons and basic skills sessions, we aim for all children to develop a strong sense of number and our number system, proficiency in arithmetic and an ability to articulate their mathematical understanding and reasoning. As well as providing children with rich, real life examples and opportunities for the application of these skills in lessons, we continuously seek to provide opportunities across the curriculum and through partnership with our families at home, to promote Maths skills and shows their relevance in all aspects of everyday life.
Times Table Rock Stars (Years 3-6)
We are using Times Table Rock Stars, a fantastic online resource, to develop our knowledge of multiplication and division facts. Times Table Rock Stars is a fun and challenging online programme designed to help pupils master their times tables by playing the different games and answering different questions to improve their Rock speed and status. Also, the children will earn coins for correctly answered questions which they can use to improve and upgrade their Rock Star Avatar. Yhttps://play.ttrockstars.com
