Confidence, respect and a love of learning


At Bonner Primary School we want to ensure that all children develop a love of maths and confidence in applying their learning to real life contexts.

Throughout the school, we use concrete, pictorial and abstract approaches to build competency in understanding a new topic.  We use a wide range of resources to help children to develop their mathematical understanding.  Our overall emphasis is on the ability to reason, understand and solve mathematical problems.


This year we our excited to be working as part of the MathsHub programme organised by the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM).

We are part of a cluster of local schools working collaboratively to enhance our teaching of the mastery maths curriculum as well as to develop and spread excellent practice.

The curriculum provides practical approaches and direct experiences. Children are encouraged and taught to talk about and share ideas in order to develop their mathematical language and thinking.

They are encouraged to explain to their peers the methods they choose and share different techniques to learn from each other. The children enjoy engaging and challenging maths lessons using a wide range of resources to suit all learning needs.

In the Early Years, maths is taught through exploring and practical activities. Children learn to count, recognise numbers and explore shape, space and measure.  Children are exposed to mathematical language on a daily basis.  

Our maths scheme for Year 1 to Year 6 is creative, hands-on and covers all the objectives from the 2014 Maths curriculum.

We use the Power Maths scheme as a basis for planning to deliver a mastery curriculum.

This ensures that all pupils can master concepts before moving on to the next part of the curriculum sequence, allowing no pupil to be left behind.  If a pupil fails to grasp a concept or procedure, this is identified quickly and early intervention ensures the pupil is ready to move forward with the whole class in the next lesson. 

Bonner pupils have access to these online maths programmes:

  • Times Tables Rock Stars
  • Mathletics
  • Espresso

Children can develop their quick mental recall of facts and embed their maths learning at home.

Mathematics homework is set through the Mathletics website.  Pupils are assigned weekly tasks to complete based on their learning in class.  Children earn points and certificates for completing homework and taking part in maths games and competitions. 

Special Events

We promote a love of maths through regular events and competitions throughout the school year.
