Maths at Hillmead

At Hillmead we follow the National Curriculum, which was introduced in September 2014 with a number of changes.

The main changes from the previous curriculum include:

  • Larger numbers are introduced earlier than they were previously.
  • Times Tables are to be known fully (12x12) by end of Y4.
  • Formal written methods for calculations are to be introduced earlier.
  • Standard units of measurement are to be introduced earlier.
  • There is now a large focus on fractions.
  • Probability is no longer in the Primary Curriculum.
  • Roman numerals are to be taught in Years 3, 4 and 5 (up to M).
  • Shape, Space & Measure renamed as ‘Geometry – position and direction’ and ‘Geometry – properties of shapes’, along with ‘Measurement’.
