Shine, Celebrate and Grow!


Mathematics equips pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world. These tools include logical reasoning, problem-solving skills, and the ability to think in abstract ways. 

Each class in the school has a daily maths session which involves whole-class teaching, group activities and individual learning. These sessions are planned carefully by teachers in order to ensure that all children are included and that lessons are varied, fun and challenging.

Our Calculation Policy shows you how maths is taught through our school.  It also shows the written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.  Click here to download your copy.


We hosted a Parent Workshop to share with parents how we teach maths at St John's.  The children demonstrated the different methods used across the school.  Click here to download the presentation. We will be running another Maths Workshop in the New Year with a focus on written calculation methods taught in Year 5 and Year 6. 

Coming soon! All children are soon to be given a login for Times Table Rockstars!! This to help reinforce the children's rapid recall of their multiplication facts.
