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. We are following a new maths scheme- Abacus. It is a super scheme and allows lots of time for the children to revisit previous areas. It also provides maths homework directly linked to the weeks learning.

 Our Math topics for the Autumn term are as follows:

Week 1: Number and place value

Week 2: Mental addition and subtraction

Week 3: Mental addition and subtraction

Week 4: Measurement

Week 5: Multiplication and division

Week 6: Reasoning
