KNOWLEDGE ORGANISERS

Using these excellent knowledge organisers will allow you to support children while encouraging independent working and learning in maths. Not only do the knowledge organisers link to core concepts in the national curriculum, they also complement the White Rose Maths scheme of learning and help to develop mastery.

Practise books & Printable resources

We recognise that some parents and carers would like to support their children at home using practice books.

The school currently provide CPG books at parents evening but also recommend the Power Maths practice books.  These closely align with the sequence of lessons and methods taught in school and will support any learning that is done at home.  There are 3 books for each year group, A for Autumn Term, B for Spring Term and C for Summer Term.

VIDEO LESSONS

These short videos were originally produced to provide primary school pupils with interactive lessons while they were learning at home. Parents or teachers can now use them in school or at home, but it is important that, within each batch, they are set in the suggested order. Most lessons are between 15 to 20 minutes long, each ending with suggested follow-up tasks.

         

MATHS IN READING

Picture books can be a fantastic way to introduce children to new maths concepts - even up to Year 6.  Below are some booklists and videos which show a selection of maths-themed picture books that open opportunities to explore a range of mathematical concepts.

MONEY TWIST

In Years 4 and 5 we deliver Money Twist, funded by Kickstart Money and delivered by MyBnk.  It is a financial education programme designed to help set positive money habits and mindsets from an early age. The expert trainers deliver live and secure lessons to our school as pupils complete activities in class. This is combined with teacher resources and family challenges. 

The programme consists of an assembly and three sessions led by expert trainers and complemented by resources for teachers and carers. Case studies, games, videos and popular culture are all used to encourage students to explore and form their own opinions on money and their relationship with it.

There are three workshops, differentiated for Lower KS2 (7-8 year olds) and Upper KS2 (9-11 year olds).

FAMILY MONEY TWIST

KickStart Money has also funded a free online financial education programme, which can be completed at home by children aged 5-7, with the support of a guardian, and aged 7-11 independently. These home-learning sessions have been designed to complement our Money Twist primary school offering to bring money to life and begin a child’s financial education journey.

Family Money Twist is designed to improve childrens’ understanding of the value of money and delayed gratification by making spending and saving decisions and gaining rewards, by tackling often difficult topics such as income and the household finances. Sessions cover key issues of where money comes from, everyday costs, needs and wants, tracking spending and saving.

There are two online programmes, differentiated by key primary age groups:
