The Curriculum


When children first begin their learning journey in the Early Years Foundation Stage, it is important they begin to build up their mathematical learning blocks. The Mastering Number programme developed by the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) aims to secure firm foundations in development of good number sense for all children from Reception through to Year 1 and Year 2.


Alongside Mastering Number, White Rose Maths is used from Reception through to Year 6. White Rose Maths aims to provide an ambitious, connected curriculum accessible to all pupils in school as well as providing pedagogic advice for teachers. At St. Laurence’s both curricula are woven throughout, working alongside each other.


As well as the main offer of our Maths curriculum, pupils have access to Maths enhancements. As a school we subscribe to Maths Circle with the online platforms – Numbots and Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS). Numbots is used from Reception and through KS1 to ensure children develop a core understanding of the three core elements of arithmetic: subitising, number bonds and addition and subtraction. TTRS is also available to every pupil, however promoted within upper KS1 and KS2 to build on their addition and subtraction knowledge. TTRS is a programme used for boosting children’s fluency and recall in multiplication and division.
