Thorpe Lea Primary School

'A dedicated community working together, nurturing a safe, happy school where all children can achieve their potential'


Our maths lessons are a mixture of practical learning, games and book work. I encourage the children to be independent learners by knowing where our resources are and accessing them if they should need to. We will be doing counting practice every day, as well as mental arithmetic. On Thursday, we have our problem solving lesson, where the children are encouraged to work together and think systematically to solve problems. The children love this because it is a fun and interactive lesson with lots of trial and error.

 Our Math topics for the Autumn term are as follows:

Week 1: Place value

Week 2: Place value

Week 3: Addition using a number line

Week 4: Subtraction using a number line

Week 5: Subtraction (finding the difference)

Week 6: Measurement
