Maths 

At Burnley Road Academy we love maths and see it as an essential life skill. We are committed to ensuring that children have a positive and meaningful experience of mathematics throughout school. We offer a curriculum that secures essential knowledge and skills whilst giving the children many opportunities to use and apply their skills across the curriciculum, through real life problem solving and mathematical investigations.

We recognise that children need a range of calculation strategies which are efficient, accurate and reliable. Through our calculation policy children are given a toolkit of strategies which enable them to calculate confidently. 

We use Hamilton Trust as the basis for our long and medium term plans which ensures curriculum coverage. We also supplement these plans using other websites and resources.

To help develop children's fluency in mathematics, we ask them to learn Key Instant Recall Facts each half term. We would like children to practise their KIRFs at least 3 times a week. This is a new initiative and you will learn more about this at the October parents' evening.
