Mathematics

This is a very exciting time for Mathematics in Primary schools due to the New National Curriculum, which is now statutory in all year groups from 1 to 6. With the onset of the new curriculum, the bar has been raised therefore expectations are higher, providing even more opportunities for challenge and the development of higher mathematical thinking and reasoning. Irrespective of year group or ability, the children are now more than ever, being encouraged to reason mathematically and to verbalise their understanding, their questions, their methods and thought processes.


At Tyntesfield, we aim to produce thoughtful mathematicians who can use mathematical vocabulary to explain their thinking and who have the confidence to do this within a classroom environment. Gone are the days of passive textbook learning. Lessons now are completely interactive with the children’s voices and opinions being an integral part of the learning process.


We aim to make Maths fun for all by injecting each lesson with excitement, variety, enjoyment and enthusiasm. A positive and passionate approach from the teaching staff, ensures our children are constantly learning and developing their skills in so many ways so that they will be mathematically equipped for their lives in the future when they eventually leave us.

count from 0 in multiples of 4, 8, 50 and 100;

count in multiples of 6, 7, 9, 25 and 1 000

count forwards or backwards in steps of powers of 10 for any given number up to 1 000 000

given a number, identify one more and one less

find 10 or 100 more or less than a given number

Spot the mistake:

5,6,8,9

What is wrong with this sequence of numbers?

True or False?

I start at 2 and count in twos. I will say 9

What comes next?

10+1 = 11

11+1= 12

12+1 = 13

……..

Spot the mistake:

45,40,35,25

What is wrong with this sequence of numbers?

True or False?

I start at 3 and count in threes. I will say 13?

What comes next?

41+5=46

46+5=51

51+5=56

……

Spot the mistake:

50,100,115,200

What is wrong with this sequence of numbers?

True or False?

38 is a multiple of 8?

What comes next?

936-10= 926

926 -10 = 916

916- 10= 906

…….

Spot the mistake:

950, 975,1000,1250

What is wrong with this sequence of numbers?

True or False?

324 is a multiple of 9?

What comes next?

6706+ 1000= 7706

7706 + 1000 = 8706

8706 + 1000 = 9706

……

Spot the mistake:

177000,187000,197000,217000

What is wrong with this sequence of numbers?

True or False?

When I count in 10’s I will say the number 10100?

What comes next?

646000-10000= 636000

636000 –10000 = 626000

626000- 10000 = 616000

…….

Spot the mistake:

-80,-40,10,50

What is wrong with this sequence of numbers?

True or False?

When I count backwards in 50s from 10 I will say

-200

True or False?
