Claremont aims to provide a high-quality mathematics education that provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject. There is a balance of fluency, problem solving and reasoning following K.C.C. guidance of progression. The children make use of manipulatives (equipment), working walls, the outdoors and each other in order to develop their understanding. Teachers develop children's independent higher order thinking skills. When children are able to describe, represent, explain, and create their own example of a concept, idea or technique they are demonstrating 'mastery'. When children are able to solve problems of greater complexity, demonstrating creativity and imagination, independently explore and investigate, communicate results clearly, and systematically explain and generalise, they are working at greater depth.
Curriculum for mathematics on a term-by-term basis
Mathseeds (Year 1) https://mathseeds.co.uk This is a web and app based learning resource. It teaches early mathematical skills in highly structured lessons, and encourages children to learn because it’s motivating and because it’s fun. Each child progresses through the online lessons at their own pace and is rewarded for their achievements. All lessons and activities can be repeated as often as necessary, so that children can revise and consolidate skills. Mathematical knowledge and the ability to solve problems are essential skills that all children need to be successful at school.

Mathletics (Years 2-6) https://www.mathletics.com/uk/ This is a web and app based learning resource. It produces powerful reports, providing teachers with deep insights into how classes and individual learners are progressing. These reports can be used to find where students are excelling, where they’re being challenged, and how to shape future activities and games to suit all learning needs. By blending intrinsic and extrinsic motivations and rewards, and using best-practice theories of gamified learning, Mathletics keeps students engaged with maths.

Numbots (Year 3) https://numbots.com This is a web based and app based learning resource. The goal is for pupils to use efficient mental calculation strategies to add and subtract two-digit numbers, so that they leave counting on their fingers behind! Visit https://numbots.com/schools/ for more information.
Times Tables Rockstars (Years 4-6) https://ttrockstars.com This is a web based and app based learning resource. It is a personalised times tables training programme. For information about the TTRS model, visit:
