Mathematics Subject Leaders are Mrs Spencer and Mrs Bell.
At Lowe’s Wong Junior School we believe that ALL children ‘can do’ Maths and we seek to foster an enjoyment of Mathematics. We aim for them to become fluent mathematicians, able to reason and problem solve.
We use the DfE endorsed ‘Maths No Problem’ teaching for mastery scheme. This
is an inclusive approach with an emphasis on promoting multiple methods of
solving a problem, building self-confidence and resilience in pupils. Topics are
studied in depth and those pupils who grasp concepts quickly are challenged with rich and sophisticated problem solving tasks. Those children who are not
sufficiently fluent are provided with additional support, normally within their
lessons, to consolidate their understanding before moving on.
Children are given strategies to support their learning of addition and subtraction number bonds, as well as multiplication and division facts. Parents are encouraged to support this learning through practice at home. The school subscribes to
TTRockstars, which is perfect for learning times tables and related division facts, as well as Mathletics and MathsWatch, all of which your child can use at home
(logins are in their home school diary). Your child’s class teacher and the schools’ Maths leads can offer guidance with this if needed.
