Statement of Intent 2021 – 2022:
At Stanhope Barrington C of E Primary School, we understand that maths is an important part of everyday life and we strive to equip all of our children to become confident and resilient mathematicians. We do this by teaching the Mastery approach which seeks to provide children with a range of strategies to apply in context. The children are taught Fluency, Reasoning and Problem-Solving skills based on the 5 Big Ideas. We support the children to become reflective thinkers and to use a range of skills to complete challenging problems. All children are encouraged to use concrete, pictoral and abstract representations to portray their understanding. By providing the children with a rich, broad and exciting curriculum our children develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude to the subject, which will provide the children with key life skills and inspire some to pursue STEM subject careers in their future.

Mastery for Maths – It has been a fantastic first half-term for our Mastery approach to Maths. The children have been understanding number with a focus on how numbers can be made up. Using a range of equipment, the children have been challenged to illustrate how numbers can go together to create a different number. Our vocabulary continues to improve with children able to discuss one more, one less and use addition and subtraction in a verbal number sentence.

Numbers to 100 – In Year 1, the children have been investigating numbers to 100. They have had lots of fun both indoors and out, recognising, making and writing numbers. We have looked at the value of numbers using dienes and other concrete materials.
Groups of 10 – In Year 2, the children have been exploring groups of 10, using a range of apparatus to understand the concept and to become confident within numbers and their values.
Ruby Learning Zone
Maths Concepts – Both year groups have worked hard on their respective Maths topics this term, using physical objects to help show their understanding of number, place value and addition and subtraction.

Walking 1,000m – Our Year 4s have been looking at the number 1,000 this week and linking it to real life context. We went for a 1,000m walk and placed a marker every 100m linking our learning to the stem sentence ‘There are ten one hundreds in one thousand’
