Maths

Mathematics at OLOL

At OLOL, we are Mathematicians. We believe that all children should be encouraged to believe that, by working hard, they can acquire a deep, long-term, secure understanding and mastery of the subject. We want our children to know that Mathematics is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology, engineering and necessary for financial literacy.  As they progress through the school, we intend children to have the ability to be able to reason mathematically, have an appreciation of the power of Mathematics and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

Mastering Number

Our school is currently taking part in the NCETM Mastering Number project acrosss KS1 and 2. 

 

In KS1, the project aims to secure firm foundations in the development of good number sense for all children from Reception through to Year 1 and Year 2. The aim over time is that children will leave KS1 with fluency in calculation and a confidence and flexibility with number. Attention will be given to key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes, and progression through KS1 to support success in the future.

 

In KS2 (Years 4 and 5), knowledge of multiplication and division and its applications forms the single most important aspect of the KS2 curriculum, and is the gateway to success at secondary school. This project enables pupils in Years 4 and 5 to develop fluency in multiplication and division facts, and a confidence and flexibility with number that exemplifies good number sense.
