Overview of Mathematics at OPPA
Our calculation policy shows which objectives each year group from year 1-6 cover and the strategies or the ways the children will be taught to solve the problems. The information starts on page 11 in the document below.
We believe that pupils should be encouraged to use mathematical language and full sentences throughout their maths learning to deepen their understanding of concepts. The following vocabulary list explains what each word means.
We also use Times Table Rockstars and Numbots to help make all children progress quicker and further. These programmes also helps with fluency. All children's log in information should have been sent home with them. Any questions please let us know.
Numbots - for Year 1
'Twos' day- 22.02.2022
They say that good things come in twos and on February 22nd, 2022, it's a big day for the number two! When written out, 2/22/22, the date is considered a palindrome, which means it can be read both forward and backward. We had a great day investigating the number two.
World Maths Day!
We thought about how important maths is and how we use it every day. We researched jobs that use maths and struggled to find any that didn't!
