We follow the White Rose maths scheme which is influenced, inspired and informed by the work of leading maths researchers and practitioners across the world. This scheme of work has been designed to develop a new culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths – a culture that produces strong, secure learning and real progress.
At Rosherville we want to shape assured, happy and resilient mathematicians who relish the challenge of maths. They become independent, reflective thinkers, whose skills not only liberate them in maths but support them across the curriculum.
In June 2020, it will become mandatory for year 4 children to sit a multiplication tables check. The multiplication tables check is designed to help ensure children in primary school know their times tables up to 12 off by heart. As well as being critical for everyday life, knowledge of multiplication tables helps children to solve problems quickly and flexibly, and allows them to tackle more complex mathematics later on in school.
At Rosherville, from Year 2-Year 6, children will be given time in school to practice their times tables every day and will be tested once a week. They will then be awarded certificates when they achieve the following:
Bronze: 2x, 5x, 10x
Silver: 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x, 6x, 10x
Gold: 12 x 12
Platinum: Able to score at least 90/95 on the 12 x 12 facts in 3 minutes
