At The Minster Junior school we firmly believe that all children have the potential to achieve highly in Mathematics. Our goal is to engender in all of our pupils a sense of success and enjoyment of mathematics to enable them to fulfil this potential. We expect that when children leave us for the challenges of secondary school, they are ready, able and confident mathematicians.
In our school, we follow the Maths No Problem Scheme of Work. This scheme is closely aligned with the objectives of the 2014 English National Curriculum for Maths. A research and evidence rich resource, MNP follows the mastery approach to Maths teaching where children master mathematical fluency through conceptual understanding and apply this to problem solving.
Our children develop deep, long-term and adaptable understanding of Maths.
You can view the Maths-No Problem schemes of work for each year group here:
Children enjoy number stars as a way of testing them on their maths knowledge. When they pass, they should be given a target sheet to revise what they need to know for the next star. They will receive a certificate for a pass and a gold star in the values assembly when they pass gold.
The target sheets for number stars can be found and printed here: Number Star Targets.
