What is taught?

Throughout the school, we teach a range of maths topics known as strands. 

These strands are:

  • Number (which includes place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division and fractions)
  • Measurement
  • Geometry (which includes properties of shape, position and direction)
  • Statistics
  • Algebra
  • Ratio and proportion

The following document outlines the expected vocabulary for each year group to use.  It is important for children to use correct mathematical vocabulary and have an understanding of what these terms mean. Below are also links to online dictionaries which provide definitions and interactive resources which aid understanding of these terms.
