Maths at Milton Park
At Milton Park Primary School we develop our children to be confident mathematicians, who experience the full richness of an exciting and varied maths curriculum. The children learn in a fun and practical way which ensures they have a deeper understanding of concepts before moving on. Our approach to teaching maths enables children to work collaboratively, to communicate their ideas clearly and to be able to problem solve effectively. We also provide an environment rich with vocabulary, models and images. We believe that where possible, lesson objectives should be taught in a real life, practical context.
We use the National Curriculum which we implement through using methods from the Boolean and the White Rose Hubs (link) to support our teaching and learning. These aims and objectives are taught across the school in daily maths lessons. Lessons are designed to challenge learners of all abilities through rich and sophisticated problems.
In addition to daily lessons, we revisit key concepts through our rolling programme of 20 minute Maths Blasts to increase stickability.
Times Tables Rockstars
Recall of times tables and number bonds are vital as a foundation for maths. Because of this, Milton Park has subscribed to Times Tables Rock Stars. TT Rockstars is a carefully sequenced programme of daily times tables practice that we use in school and can be accessed from home using the link below.
TT Rockstars has very successfully boosted times tables recall speed for hundreds of thousands of pupils over the last 8 years in over 12,000 schools - both primary and secondary - worldwide.

At Milton Park we also use Super Movers which encourages an active approach to learning times tables.
