Maths at KIlham


At Kilham CE Primary School, we follow the statutory National Curriculum Programmes of Study for Mathematics in Key Stages 1 and 2. These can be accessed by clicking here.

In Years 1 to 4, we use the Collins 'Busy Ant Maths' scheme as our core resource. The scheme provides a straightforward and flexible approach that meets the needs of pupils of all abilities through differentiated content. This means that pupils within a class can be working on the same maths topic and attainment target, but with a variety of exercises to meet different children's specific learning needs. 

More information on the scheme we use in Years 1, 2, 3 & 4 can be found here:



In Years 5 & 6, we use a scheme called "Target Your Maths", which has been written to provide a straightforward manageable structure to help teachers plan and teach the Programme of Study for Mathematics in the renewed 2014 National Curriculum Framework. New topics, such as Roman numerals and algebra, have been introduced, and the whole curriculum framework has been organised into domains, such as Number, Measurement and Geometry. The work to be covered is organised into a three term year and the work for each term is then arranged into 12 blocks, each corresponding approximately to one week’s work.  More information can be found here:

You will find detailed information about termly coverage of maths objectives on the Termly Overviews.

In addition to these core Mathematics schemes, we use a product called RM Easimaths. This is an online resource which automatically provides an individualised learning programme for each child, based upon their responses to questions. RM Easimaths forms the basis of our home-learning expectatioins at Kilham - we recommend that children try and complete 3 15 minutes sessions a week for maximum impact.
