Bishopstone Church Of England Primary School

Welcome to Our Website!

Maths - page under review Feb21

Through Covid19 we trialled and then adopted 'MyMaths' as an online platform that children at Bishopstone could use at home.  This allowed us to set individual targets, lessons and work for each individual child that was unable to attend school during Lockdown.  Click here for parent letter - 13/03/2020 

Staff continue to be supported by up-to-date information through the attendance of a maths hub/CPD sessions.  This is run by Liz Hopkins Consultancy.  Meetings currently held online were: 27/01/2020, 31/03/2020 and 22/06/2020.

Information regarding the new multiplication check for parents - click here.  The multiplication check did not occur in 2020 due to Covid19.  It will start for the first time in 2021. 

Mathematics teaching follows the National Primary Framework, along with a range of resource books called Power Maths.  The school began following the Power Maths programme, linked to White Rose Maths in September 2018. This is recommended by the DfE.  Follow this link for an overview.  Medium and long term planning is taken from WhiteRose and integrated with Power Maths.  For Autumn 2020 we will be following the WhiteRose adapted plans due to Covid19.  Click here to review.

Due to Covid19 we are adapting a slightly different plan - the White Rose 20/21 response to Covid which allows revisiting of areas that the children may not have learnt due to the first lock down.  We then adapt this document depending on the daily assessment within the class.
