Our aims at St. Philip’s are to ensure that all pupils:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils have conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately to problems
- reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
- can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
In September 2017, we held a parent workshop, where we discussed the new Maths curriculum and shared some of the key expectations for each year group. The Powerpoint presentation from the workshop and the Key Learning grids for each year group are included below. Please remember that these year groups expectations are for the end of the year.

Year 2 children should be able to recall their 2, 5 and 10x tables and division facts by the end of Year 2.
Year 3 children should be able to recall their 3, 4 and 8x tables and division facts by the end of Year 3.
Year 4 children should be able to recall all of their tables and dvision facts up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4.
If you know your 4x tables (Year 3), you should be able to complete these calculations almost instantly.
6 x 4 = _____ 32 ÷ 4 = _____ _____ x 4 = 16 _____ ÷ 4 = 12
