The Mathematics National Curriculum

The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:

1.  become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils have conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately to problems

2.  reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language

3.  can solve 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. 

Mathematics Programmes of Study


Below you can find information about the Mathematics programmes of study for each year group.

Key Instant Recall Facts


Detailed below are the Key Instant Recall Facts that your child will be learning each half term. There are some great suggestions for learning these facts at home. The facts are important foundations to your child becoming successful in Maths. 



Mathletics UK


Mathletics is a great website that has a range of different mathematical games and activities.  At Stonehill, all pupils in years 2-6 have access to the website. Children are encouraged to use Mathletics at home, if they are able to, and there will also be time for the children to access Mathletics during school time.


Each week, the children work towards achieving Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates and these will be presented in celebration assembly on a Friday.


All pupils should have an individual user name and password to log in to their account. If you are unsure of the details please speak to your child's class teacher.
