Developing Maths Mastery


At Laurel Lane we have begun our journey to implement a curriculum that develops mastery. We use a variety of different approaches to ensure that the children gain a full and comprehensive education in maths that allows them to be ready to face the challenges that the world may throw at them.

Please find below the Calculation Policy, which shows how to tackle different calculations, depending on the age of your child.

Times Tables

To supplement the children's knowledge of Times Tables, we also subscribe to Times Table Rockstars, which is an online platform that helps your child to develop their recall of times table and also their knowledge of the related division facts.

This is especially important for children in Year 4, who will this year face the first Year 4 Times Table Check.


We also subscribe to Sumdog. This is a different online platform that allows your child to practise their mathematical knowledge in a really fun and engaging way.
