Pupils at Stanford have a history of highly-developed number skills, nurtured from Reception to Year 6 through our main scheme My Maths.
It is based on the renowned Singapore method of teaching (implemented throughout England by Dr Yeap Ban Har): using Concrete (physical resources); Pictorial (illustrate a problem); and Abstract (writing a calculation or equation). The children love working together on ‘In focus’ reasoning tasks and having the opportunity to tackle new concepts in workbooks and additional Maths Journals.
To ensure all pupils thrive within lessons, teachers also offer them opportunities for daily enrichment challenges and reasoning questions to apply their new learning and work towards ‘mastery’.
Alongside the scheme, Stanford pupils are dedicated to weekly times table testing and a Weekly skills test which supports their essential maths basics.
In order to support parents and pupils outside of school, we have subscribed to the very popular My Maths, which offers online games, booster packs, lessons and home learning.
At Stanford, we are proud of the progress our children make in Maths and know you will be too! Maths is encouraged across the wider curriculum, particularly when recording science, and begins right down in the Nursery through cooking and counting games. All pupils feel challenged and supported through our rich and practical approach towards Mathematics. Come and see for yourself!
