At St Anthony's we follow the White Rose Maths Scheme for each year group which is designed to support a mastery approach to maths teaching and learning. They have been designed to support the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum.

Children follow the concrete, pictorial, abstract approach to provide them with the opportunity to grasp new concepts and become confident mathematicians.  


Concrete - children should have the opportunity to use concrete objects and manipulatives to help them understand what they are doing.

Pictorial - alongside this children should use pictorial representations. These representations can then be used to help reason and solve problems.

Abstract - both concrete and pictorial representations should support children's understanding of abstract methods.


The purpose of the MTC is to determine whether year 4 pupils can fluently recall their multiplication tables. The MTC is focused on the fluent recall of multiplication facts. This is included in the national curriculum (2014) statutory programme of study for mathematics for key stage 1 and key stage 2. The national curriculum states 'by the end of year 4, pupils should have memorised their multiplication tables up to 12 x 12 and show precision and fluency in their work'. 

The MTC will be delivered as an online, on-screen digital assessment and will take each pupil less than 5 minutes to complete.
