Hempstalls Primary School

Learning and Laughing Together

A A A

Our aim at Hempstalls is to promote enjoyment and curiosity of learning through practical mathematics, exploration, investigation and discussion and to develop sustainable learning for pupils for the future. We pride ourselves on providing the best possible opportunities for our pupils by developing their ability to move between concrete, pictorial and abstract representations fluently and confidently. The long-term goal (which also runs through the heart of our curriculum) is to promote and provide opportunities for pupils to develop the core learning skills of confidence, determination, curiosity, aspiration, teamwork, independence, communication and focus.

Times Tables
 

One of the aims of the National Curriculum is to ensure all pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics.  This doesn’t mean learning facts but here at Hempstalls we strive to encourage our pupils explain and allow them to explore the mathematical structure and patterns of the times tables. However, being able to recall facts quickly and accurately, through frequent practice enables children to access more complex problems and concepts during daily maths lessons.

Expectations - Check our times tables fluency progression table for pupils from Year 1 - Year 6. 

TT Rockstars 'Trust' Competition
 
We joined forces with other schools and competed in a TT Rockstars competition across our multi academy trust. The day was a 'rocking' success, seeing pupils smash their previous TT speed and accuracy! Incentives were given for those who had been working hardest in the run up to the competition and prizes given to overall winners. 
Pupils also dressed as their favourite avatar for the special day - here's one of our famous rockstars!
