At Lethbridge Primary School we seek to develop a positive attitude to Mathematics through a sense of purpose and achievement in the subject. Our aim is to ensure that the children leave Lethbridge Primary School, not only confident in the use of a wide range of skills, but also with an understanding of the subject that will support them through their secondary schools and beyond.

While working in this subject we promote confidence, curiosity, independence, persistence and the ability to work individually, in pairs or groups. We place great emphasis on enjoyment as the children become secure with both mental strategies and written techniques ensuring a confident approach to problem solving and a desire for clarity and accuracy. The children enjoy solving problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

We aim to develop the children's skills and fluency in mathematics which can then be used and applied in a variety of contexts. Pupils learn to use mathematical systems and conventions and to appreciate the relationship between mathematical operations and processes, approaching tasks without anxiety. The children develop their ability to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language

The curriculum is delivered through the implementation of ‘Development Matters in the Early Years Foundation Stage' and ‘The 2014 National Curriculum' in both discrete lessons and through other subjects areas where appropriate.

Times Tables
In the Primary National Curriculum, times tables up to 12 x 12 are something which children are required to know and understand by Year 4. Traditionally, times tables were learned in order; 1 x 3 = 3, 2 x 3 = 6. However, this is not useful for the real life application of those times tables or for completing written multiplication or division.
Children can practise at the following website:
www.timestables.me.uk
and can print off practice tests here:
www.timestables.me.uk/printable-pdf-quiz-generator.htm

What is a multiplication and division fact?
The multiplication and division facts for 3, 4 and 12 are:

3 x 4 = 12 4 x 3 = 12 12 ÷ 3 = 4 12 ÷ 4 = 3

A child learning the 3 or 4 times tables will need to know all 4 facts.

What can parents do to help?
  • Start with chanting and writing them out slowly in order
  • Then move on to completing the answers quickly in order - on paper or verbally with your child
  • Finally move on to completing the answers in any order
  • Keep reminding your child that 3 x 4 is the same as 4 x 3 - this effectively halves the number of tables facts
  • Each times table has a square number 3×3, 7×7 etc
  • Talk about the numbers as you encounter them "5 x 8 = 40 that's mummy's age", "3 x 6 = 18 that's our house number" . . . this makes more memory hooks.
