We also subscribe to Numbots and Times Tables Rock Stars which ensures our pupils become fluent in their rapid recall of number bonds to 20 and times tables. In Early Years and Key Stage 1, we have been a part of the Mastering Number project funded by the NCETM, which has had a profound impact on our pupils understanding of numbers to 20. Some pupils in Key Stage 2 also take part in the First Mathematics Challenge and the Primary Mathematics Challenge, which aim to engage pupils in sophisticated problem solving.
St. Paul’s work closely with the local Maths Hubs, originally working with Central Maths Hub and now working with Origin Maths Hub. We do this to ensure our Mathematics teaching is the best it can possibly be so that our pupils reach their full potential. We are currently working with Origin Maths Hub on the Mastering Number programme, aimed at Early Years and Key Stage 1, and are a part of the Mastery Sustaining group.
