Here at St Saviour’s we have a passion for high quality teaching and learning of mathematics.

We believe that every child can succeed in maths and we aim to instil this belief in the children themselves!


In Y5, we aspire that all learners:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics

  • Develop a deep conceptual understanding, and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately

  • Reason mathematically by conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and proving their understanding using mathematical language and representations

  • Have the opportunity to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication

  • Are guided to break down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevere in seeking solutions.

How parents/ carers can support their child's learning in maths: 




Encourage children to use Mathletics at home - it's a fantastic (and free!) resource that helps to consolidate learning.

Each child has a login (found in Reading Record) and should complete 2x set assignments each week. 




Times Tables Rockstars:-

By Y5, children should be fluent in their 1x-12x times tables. To strengthen your child's arithmetic skills, please encourage regular practice.

They can access Times Tables Rockstars, another brilliant site with a fun and fast paced approach to times tables. Individual logins can be found in Reading Records. 


Popcorn tests:

Every Friday we complete a multiplication test (popcorn test) in class. Your child will receive a copy of this for optional (but recommended) further practice. 

Parent Tours for Reception intake September 2025 are every Monday morning from June 2024. Please book a slot by emailing :
