Maths in Early Years

Maths in KS1 and KS2


At Dallam School, we recognise that mathematics is a vital tool for everyday life, necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment.  It is a whole network of interconnected concepts and relationships which provide a way of viewing and making sense of the world. Through our maths curriculum we aim to equip our children with the skills to communicate information and ideas and tackle a wide range of real life problems, both routine and non-routine.


Using the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (2017) and the National Curriculum for England (2014) to underpin our curriculum, we adopt a mastery approach, promoting:


  • a positive attitude towards mathematics and a sense of curiosity about the subject
  • The expectation that the vast majority pupils can achieve a standard appropriate to their age in mathematics and progress at broadly the same pace
  • The importance of using concrete resources to develop conceptual understanding before moving to visual representations and then the abstract.
  • the ability to communicate mathematical knowledge and understanding effectively, in a variety of ways
  • perseverance and challenge through rich, sophisticated problems
  • fluency, the ability to solve problems, reason, and think logically whilst working systematically and accurately
  • the ability to make connections within and across areas of maths, developing number sense and efficiency
  • the application of mathematics across the wider curriculum
  • initiative and an ability to work both independently and in co-operation with others

If you require additional information relating to the curriculum please speak to your child's class teacher.

Year 4 Multiplication Check

The purpose of the check is to determine whether your child can fluently recall their times tables up to 12, which is essential for future success in mathematics. The children will be fully prepared for the check by their class teacher and it will take place in the Summer term. Please see the below documents for further information.
