Maths 2021 - 2022

‘Good mathematics is not about how many answers you know… It’s about how you behave when you don’t know’ – Anonymous
 

“A high-quality mathematics education provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.” (National Curriculum 2014)

At Boundary, we encourage children to not only work fluently but to also be confident problem solvers. We encourage and promote multiple methods to solving problems, providing our pupils with self- confidence and resilience. Through the teaching of ‘mastery’, we ensure that children gain a deep and secure understanding of key mathematical concepts at each stage of their learning.

For a detailed understanding of the Intent, Implementation and Impact of the teaching of Maths at Boundary, please read the document below.


Mathematics - Key Instant Recall Facts (KIRFs)

To develop fluency and mental maths recall, we are introducing KIRF’s (Key Instant Recall Facts) throughout school.

KIRF’s are a way of helping your child to learn important maths facts that need to be recalled quickly.  Having rapid recall of these facts will support your child in meeting their full potential in mathematics.

KIRF’s support the development of mental maths skills which are vital in becoming a successful mathematician.  They are also particularly useful when moving onto written calculations: addition; subtraction; multiplication and division. 

KIRF’s contain number facts such as number bonds and times tables that need constant practise in order for children to be able to recall them quickly and accurately. 

Each half term, children will focus on a KIRF to practise and learn at home.  For your child to become more efficient in recalling these facts, they need to be practised frequently and for short periods of time. They are not designed to be a time-consuming task, they can be practised anywhere – in the car, on the bus, walking to school etc.  The key is regular practice – little and often – will help children to retain these facts.

The KIRF’s will be sent home with key vocabulary and ideas to support this learning at home and your child’s teacher will also be able to offer further suggestions if needed.  The KIRF’s will also be available on the school website.

Throughout the half term, KIRF’s will also be practised within school and your child’s teacher will assess whether they have been retained.

Reception children participate in the Mastering Number Program, developed by the NCETM.  This program is delivered to the children four times a week by the class teacher.  It aims to secure firm foundations in the development of good number sense for all children in Reception.  The aim is that children will leave KS1 with fluency in calculation and a confidence and flexibilty with number.
The sessions are based around 3 key principles for developing good number sense in the Early Years.  These include; 1) Subitising 2) Counting, cardinality and ordinality 3) Composition of number.
The sessions are delivered to the children using songs, games, practical activities using manipulatives and discussions.  These sessions are then followed up with adult led activities in small groups, as well as enhancements within the classroom continuous provision.
In Maths, personalised planning (objective led planning for each child) is used based on baseline assessment.  Provision is enhanced with activities based on what the children are learning.  Children progress at their own pace and move on when needed.  Adult led activities are based on objective led planning.
