At Overleigh we firmly believe that every child can be a mathematician. We plan exciting and engaging lessons with clear progression so that every child can achieve their full potential. 

The national requirements for Mathematics for children in each Key Stage are laid out in the National Curriculum but the way in which you teach and enable the children to achieve these objectives is decided by the school.

We have adopted the White Rose mastery approach to teaching Maths and the progression documents which we use for planning are attached as documents towards the foot of the page. 

You will also find the school's calculation policy which clearly demonstrates the progression from concrete methods to pictorial representations to abstract methods for each strand of Mathematics. 

We have subscribed to a website called MyMaths which supports all aspects of Maths learning from the start of Reception up to High School. The username is overleigh and the password is yellow. Please click on the link below and use it at home. It is great for the children to practise but it is also a useful tool for parents as it demonstrates clearly the way Maths is taught in school.

Many of the children have also found Times Tables Rock Stars to be great for learning times tables. 

These are a few other websites which we have found useful for teaching Maths:
