At Shenton Primary school, we aim to develop children’s learning so they become confident and competent mathematical thinkers. We want all of our children to have a positive attitude and be able to apply their maths to a range of contexts.
Our long term planning is based on the National Curriculum.
Our medium term planning is based on the requirements of our children. Short term planning follows a cycle of assessment, teaching, practising and then the ability to investigate and the children's ability to apply their learning to puzzles and problems!

Year 4 Multiplication Tables Check
Our children had a fantastic day learning about 2D and 3D shapes, understanding how to be logical thinkers and developing their spatial awareness and code breaking skills!

Shenton's MATHS GRIDS
Our Maths Grids include age related objectives that the children are expected to meet by the end of the academic year. These grids were made by Shenton Primary School's teachers using the National Curriculum and 2018 TAF statements for KS1. The EYFS Grids have been created using the 2021 "Birth to 5 Matters" documents.
The teachers use the grids to ensure coverage of the curriculum and to record what a child is able to do so any gaps in learning can be planned for.
Please see each year group's Maths Grid below:
HELPING YOUR CHILD AT HOME
Our Calculations Policy below will show you how your child is taught methods at Shenton Primary School. The methods in our policy are progressive and build on the children's prior knowledge of number. When supporting your child, please use the same methods suggested in our policy for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division so they do not get confused. If you are unsure, please come in and talk to us. There will also be parent workshops throughout the year where methods are explained.
Thank you for your continuous support!
