At Brandling, we value the importance of mathematics in everyday life and possibilities that it can lead to. We have an inclusive curriculum that strives for all learners to succeed and have the foundations they need for success. Our curriculum focuses on reducing cognitive overload and allowing for mathematical concepts to be revisited and for children to build on their prior knowledge. Through the mastery approach we aim for children to become competent and independent mathematicians and creative problem solvers.
Times Tables Rockstars
TT Rockstars was introduced in September 2018. The programme allows all children in school from Year 1 up to Year 6 access to times tables games and tests. Weekly TT Rockstars assemblies are held in school where children compete for awards. The programme is fantastic preparation for the Year 4 Times Tables tests. More importantly, it is developing a secure knowledge of fundamentally vital facts to a child's mathematical development.
