Mathematics

Here at St Jude’s we place a great deal of emphasis on high quality teaching and learning of mathematics.

The curriculum established in 2014 guides us in our approach to delivering meaningful and relevant mathematical concepts linked to topics and texts in other areas.

The children acquire new and transferrable skills that prepare them for ‘real life’. We focus on number (including the four operations), measurement, geometry and statistics throughout the academic year.

Mathematics holds a very high profile at our school which is enhanced further by our focus events that take place in the Summer Term.

In 2015 the school community worked together to produce a wonderful exhibition based on the theme ‘Maths through Art’.

In 2016 the children enjoyed an Olympic-themed Maths Day in which they experienced six different sporty problem-solving sessions around the school, attended a puzzle workshop and attempted to win the hourly maths challenge competition, read out on the hour every hour by our teachers.

We continue to be at the forefront of the drive towards ‘mastery’ in mathematics at St Jude’s.

All our lessons provide the children with an opportunity to achieve mastery in the concept being taught and we are excited to be an official ARK ‘Mathematics Mastery’ partner school, rolling out the initiative in Reception and Year 1 this year.

Our staff are skilled in planning and assessing mastery in mathematics and we are very proud of this.
