At Maltby Lilly Hall Academy we aim to equip our pupils with a range of mathematical skills that are relevant to the new National Curriculum. We aim to do this by developing pupil’s mathematical capabilities in a varied way which aims to develop their ‘mastery’ of a given concept. As such each daily Maths lesson contains an element of conceptual understanding, problem solving and reasoning in a way which allows children to see the relevance of the mathematics they are learning to their growing understanding of the world around them.
Children are no longer assessed using levels, but teachers give an assessment on whether children are at an age related expectations using statements set out in the new National Curriculum. These assessments are made using a triangulation of in depth questioning, marking of books and observations. Statutory assessments are made at the end of Year 2 and Year 6.
