Maths at Gilmour Infant School
Maths at Gilmour Infant School is planned following the School Improvement Liverpool Maths Plans and supplemented by documents from NCETM and White Rose Maths Hub. Our yearly overviews show the content being taught in each year group each term. These are estimates and may change depending on the teacher's ongoing assessment.
Please find links below to useful documents and websites which we use to enhance the Maths curriculum.
Each week our "Learning Together" sheets will be sent home detailing the learning that has been taking place in Maths. Examples will be given of the type of problems your child has been solving and the methods they have used. Please use these to help support your child completing their "My Maths" homework which will be based around what they have learnt each week. The "My Maths" online platform also provides accompanying lessons to support the online homework if needed.
If you need any support or advice with the Maths learning that is taking place, please do not hesitate to speak to your class teacher who will be able to support you.
The "Family Maths toolkit" is to support families learning Maths together. It is full of ideas and activities to enjoy working through together to improve your Maths. Following the link below will take you to the toolkit.
We hope you have lots of fun having a go at some of these activities.
Be positive about Maths! - even if you have had bad experiences yourself.
Point out Maths in everyday life (numbers, counting, measuring) - shopping, cooking, travelling.
Praise your child for their efforts in Maths.
