The Mathematics curriculum
Lakefield uses a range of materials to deliver an engaging and balanced curriculum, focusing on each child's individual needs. Analysis is done during the course of the year in order to provide teachers with areas of development for their class, groups and individuals and is repeated as required. The children are encouraged to learn their number facts and multiplication tables and are tested regularly including undertaking the 99 club, on a daily basis, to aid rapid recall of mental facts and to enhance their development. Our Mathematics is based around the Shanghai curriculum through the use of Rising Stars Mathematics. As well as having traditional mathematics exercise books children have log books which help support and extend both the child in need of extra input and challenge more-able child. The school has invested in Sumdog (an online resource) in order to help support, develop and challenge the children both in school and at home.
