Mathematics

At Comberbach Nursery and Primary School we are committed to ensuring that children have a positive and meaningful experience of Mathematics. We offer a curriculum that secures essential knowledge and skills, whilst giving the children many opportunities to use and apply their mathematical skills across the curriculum, through real life problem solving and mathematical investigations.

White Rose Maths

At Comberbach Nursery and Primary School, we use White Rose Maths to plan and teach from. A yearly overview for each year group suggests the teaching time needed for every block of learning. The Autumn, Spring and Summer sections are split equally into 12 weeks comprising 11 weeks of blocks followed by a week of consolidation. 

The termly overviews show the objectives for each block. These objectives derive directly from the National Curriculum. Teachers teach the content in the suggested order as the step sequence is designed to gradually develop children’s understanding. The schemes of learning have been carefully developed to ensure they are progressive and build upon prior learning.

Times Table Rockstars

The children are loving using TT Rockstars! They regularly come into school excited to tell us what they have been up to, and what they have managed to achieve. TT Rockstars in an online programme that allows children to practise their rapid recall of multiplication and division facts. Children from Year 1 to Year 6 have an account where their teachers will set the appropriate times tables for children.
