Herts for Learning 2019/20 Year 5 Maths Challenge

Well done to Ira, Lyla, max and Luca, who attended the Year 5 Maths Challenge. They worked well together as a team and enjoyed working through the different problems.

How well would you do?

Take a look at the questions they had answer.

Questions (these have been taken from the shared powerpoint, which was too large to share on our website. If you would like a copy, please come and see Mrs Romain)

Bus Route   How many triangles? Memory round


Thank you to all of the parents who have attended my workshops over the past few months.

I really appreciate your continued support.

If you were unable to attend but interested to find out what we discussed, please take a look at my presentations used within the sessions:

Key Stage 1 Mental Methods


Key Stage 2 Methods


March 2019

Thank you to the parents who attended my maths workshop today.

We concentrated on KS1 Mental Methods, discussing strategies taught in the classroom as well as ways in which you can support your children.


January 2019

Thank you to all the parents who attended my maths workshop today.

We concentrated on Times Tables and ways in which parents can support their child/ren in learning these at home.

I hope you have fun practising together.

I will be repeating this workshop on Tuesday 12th February 6-7pm.

Please sign on via the gateway.


November 29th

Thank you to the parents who attended our maths workshops today. We worked through some mental and written methods, discussing the strategies taught in KS2.

I will be holding this session again next week (Thursday 6th December) as well as two other workshops on KS1 methods and Times Tables support in the new year. Please sign on via the gateway.

Intent, Implementation and Impact


The National Curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all children:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time,so that children have conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately
  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.


The expectation in the National Curriculum is that the majority of children will move through the programmes of study at broadly the same pace. However, decisions about when to progress should always be based on the security of children’s’ understanding and their readiness to progress to the next stage. Children who grasp concepts rapidly should be challenged through being offered enriching problems before any acceleration through new content. Those who are not sufficiently fluent with earlier material should consolidate their understanding, including, through additional practice, before moving on.


At Ladbrooke, Maths is taught through blocked units of work. These blocks have been taken from the recommended White Rose guidance and our planning and lessons are in line with the materials produced alongside this guidance.
