Maths

Welcome to Maths at Henley Green!

Our Maths Curriculum

The National Curriculum for Mathematics was changed in 2014. This is in place for all children in Years 1 to 6. 

 

The National Curriculum for Mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and nonroutine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

 

Please click the link below to see the key areas of learning in the curriculum. We will be striving to achieve these when working with your child at school and we appreciate any support you can give in supporting your child with these outcomes at home. 

Our Vision

At Henley Green, we want our pupils to be confident and curious mathematicians who liked to be challenged. 

Number Development Workshops for Parents

We regularly invite parents of children in Years 1 to 6 to join us for Number Development Workshops. Parents get the chance to see the calculation methods and resources that their child uses at their stage of learning. We also share ideas for how parents can support their child at home. Parents then have a chance to work alongside their child in the classroom - seeing these ideas, methods and resources in action!

Times Tables Rock Stars and NumBots

 

Our pupils have access to both Times Tables Rock Stars and NumBots. These are a fantastic way of practising key basic maths skills both in school and at home.

When our maths skills helped us to reach new heights...

Three of our Year 6 pupils represented Henley Green in a regional times tables competition (more details in the post below) and they won! Their prize was a helicopter flight for the team and their teacher. We went to Wolverhampton Airport and flew around the local area in two twenty minute flights. We flew at heights of 500 feet and speeds of around 100 mph! What a fantastic way to end their time at Henley Green! 

 

 

Three of our Year 6 pupils represented Henley Green in a Times Tables Rock Stars Wrangle at St Edmund Campion School in Birmingham. They competed in a qualifying heat, answering as many questions as possible on multiplication facts from their twos to their twelves on the computers. They all did fantastically leading to Henley Green having the second highest average score as a school out of over twenty schools and nearly one hundred pupils! Two of them made it to both the quarter finals and then the semi finals, making it to the final eight. One of our pupils then made it to the final four - a tense competition in the hall in front of an audience. They had to concentrate for three minutes answering a mixture of times tables questions up to 12 x 12. It was a tensely fought battle but... Henley Green won! He managed to answer a superb 340 questions in three minutes! He is now a Supreme Ultimate Rock Hero for Eternity on Times Tables Rock Stars and was not only awarded the trophy but won a helicopter flight for the Year 6 team and their teacher!
