At Pennoweth we use the Mastery approach to teaching Mathematics, following the 5 main principles of Coherence, Representation and Structure, Mathematical Thinking, Fluency and Variation. The small steps of progression enable children to learn together and embed key knowledge in each strand of Maths, deepening their thinking and allowing them to reason mathematically, apply their knowledge to other curriculum areas and become confident, curious learners.

Children enjoy Maths at Pennoweth School and benefit from the consistency of the White Rose materials used in each year group, alongside familiar classroom resources and vocabulary, and daily fluency practice.

Times Tables
 
At Pennoweth we know the importance of learning your times tables - we have subscribed to the learning website 'Times Tables Rock Stars' and practise fluency in the classrooms each day.  Please use the link below to take you to the TTRS website and support your child's learning at home.
 
 
For more information on which times tables your child is learning in their class, please refer to the 'KS1/2 Times Tables Planner' document.
 
Mathletics
 
During the half term, the children all received a username and password for Mathletics.  This interactive website will be used to set homework each week and children can also access it to play mathematical games against each other and other children around the world. It is a fantastic learning tool and we would encourage you to explore the website with your child. Certificates will be awarded for children who reach Bronze, Silver and Gold level, badges will be awarded on Marvellous Me and the children will have their names added to the school newsletter.
