At St Bonaventure’s we follow the National Curriculum of September 2013 and believe that numeracy is essential for our children to progress in the future. Our aims, when teaching mathematics, are for our children to:
  • Understand the importance in maths on a day-to-day basis
  • Explore maths through immersive practical activities and discussion, that give the children pleasure
  • Promote independent thinking, reasoning, decision making and problem solving
  • Encourage confidence with the numbers and the number system
  • Ensure that children are able to collect information and present in a way that is accessible to themselves, their peers and the adults in their lives
  • Predict effectively, based on graphs, diagrams, charts and tables as our children spot patterns and recognise mathematical consistency.

All KS2 children work on their times tables every week. We have five levels from Bronze to Kryptonite which progress in difficulty and subject area, to prepare them for the arithmetic skills of KS2. When they get full marks in under five minutes, three times, they will earn their award certificate in Praise Assembly.
We have examples of each of our Times Tables tests below. Mr Harrison has also made them into an iOS app called KS2 Times Tables
