Maths 1


At St. Peter's, we aim to ensure that all children:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics
  • Are able to reason mathematically
  • Can solve problems by applying their Mathematics

The intent of our mathematics curriculum at St. Peter’s Catholic Primary School is to design a curriculum which is accessible to all and will maximise the development of every childs ability and academic achievement. We deliver lessons that are creative and engaging. We want children to make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. We intend for our pupils to be able to apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects. We want children to realise that mathematics has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of historys most intriguing problems. We want them to know that it is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. As our pupils progress, we intend for our pupils to be able to understand the world, have the ability to reason mathematically, have an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.

At St. Peter's we follow the White Rose scheme and their small steps, alongside other resources to support the teaching of each Maths topic. Please see the documents below to see what is taught in each year group across an academic year.

Maths in EYFS

Our Early Years Foundation Stage follow Development Matters in Maths. They cover number and shape, space and measure. At the start of Reception, children develop their number sense. They spend time looking at each number to 10 and explore different representations of these numbers for example 5 dots on a dice, 5 cubes, 5p, a 5 sided shape, 5 o’clock. Developing this conceptual understanding of number helps them to build on their maths knowledge further. Children have opportunities to develop their maths skills and knowledge through a daily maths sessions and continuous provision inside and outside. Learning is active and practical.

Please see the document below for the stages of development in Maths for the EYFS.
