At Holly Primary School, we aim develop children’s confidence, fascination and excitement of discovery through the teaching and learning of mathematics. We strongly believe that children should feel supported, guided and encouraged to achieve their maximum potential in challenging and exciting activities. Lessons will not only ensure that fluency skills are improving but also that children are improving their confidence in reasoning and problem solving.

Our children will thrive upon conquering the challenges and problems that mathematics will bring and not be afraid to make mistakes.
At Holly our aim is for children to leave as confident, skilled and resilient mathematicians; who understand that mathematics is a fundamental part of everyday life and the world we live in.


• To develop children’s fluency in mathematical concepts.

Mathematics is an integral part of a child’s learning and development. It is essential to everyday life and is critical to ensure that children develop the suitable skills for future employment. Children acquire a certain range of tools from mathematics, such as: logical thinking, reasoning, fluency, problem solving and higher order thinking skills. These tools enable children to piece together different mathematical concepts and apply their knowledge to real- life situations. Maths is present constantly in our changing world, from money to measures to data handling. To give our future generation the best possible chance in life, an enriching and challenging maths education is vital to developing these key skills.

Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice.

Each week concentrates on a different times table, with a recommended consolidation week for rehearsing the tables that have recently been practiced every third week or so.
