# Maths

At Kelvin Grove Primary School, we teach maths using a mastery approach. Children learn using small steps which support every child in the class to make progress. The pace of the lesson will be determined by the children’s understanding of different concepts. Each lesson will include fluency, reasoning and problem solving. All pupils will foster a love of the subject and be taught the skills and facts needed to be able to access the curriculum and flourish into confident mathematicians.

Multiplication Tables

We will teach the tables using a number of techniques and encourage children to make connections between the tables they are learning, e.g:

3 x 2 = 6                                   3 X 4 = 12                                3 X 8 = 24

• What do you notice about the product when you multiply by 2 and then by 4?
• How can I use this is calculate 4 x 8?
• If I know 3 x 8 = 24, how will this help me to calculate 3 x 80?

The expectations for each year group are as follows:

 Year First… Then… Nursery Count 10 items correctly and know total Recognise numbers 1-5 and match to correct amount Reception Count in 1s to 20 and back. Say one more and one less than a number to 20. 1 Count fluently forwards in multiples of 2 and 10 to 20 and 100. Count fluently forwards in multiples of 2, 5 and 10 from zero to 20, 50 and 100.Recognise odd and even numbers to 10. 2 Fluently recite the 2,5- and 10-times table.Answer multiplication and division facts out of order for these tables.Recognise odd and even numbers.Recall doubles of all numbers to 10 and corresponding halves. Fluently recite 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables.Answer multiplication and division facts out of order for these tables.Count in multiples of 3 to 36. 3 Fluently recite the 2,4 and 8 multiplication tables. Answer multiplication and division facts out of order for these tables. Fluently recite 2,4 and 8 multiplication tables.Answer multiplication and division facts out of order for these tables.Count forwards from zero in steps of 50 and 100 to 1000 and back again. 4 Fluently recite the 3,6 and 9 multiplication tables and answer multiplication and division facts out of order.Fluently recite the 7 multiplication table Fluently recite any requested table to 12 x 12 and answer multiplication and division facts out of order.Count forward from zero in steps of 25 to given number and back again. 5 Fluently recite any given table up to 12 x 12 and answer multiplication and division facts out of order.Count on or back from any multiple of 25, 50 or 100 in steps of 25, 50 or 100. Find factor pairs of any number in the tables to 12 x 12.Quickly identify factors that two given number have in common.Recall prime numbers to 19 and square numbers to 12×12. 6 Fluently recite any given table to 12 x 12 and answer multiplication and division facts out of order.Identify prime numbers up to 50.Use known facts and place value to calculate mentally e.g. 200 x 3, 40 x 6, 360 ÷ 6, 7.2 ÷ 9, 0.6 x 8. Mentally divide 3 digit number by a single digit using tables facts to partition the number e.g. 372 ÷6 = (360 + 12) ÷6, 434 ÷ 7 = (420 + 14) ÷ 7.Identify prime numbers up to 100 e.g. which numbers between 80 and 90 are prime?Find e.g. 1/3 of ∆= 21, 1/5 of ∆= 2.5

In Year 4, the children will complete an online multiplication check which the Department for Education will set. The MTC is an on-screen check consisting of 25 times tables questions. This will be completed in June and all children are expected to be able to recall all their multiplication table facts. It is a timed test and children must be able to recall facts rapidly.
