At Barton, we use White Rose Maths as our foundation for planning and teaching Mathematics. The small steps of learning allow children to build on their subject knowledge not just across the year groups but also across the terms. To allow for progress and challenge, our expectation is that children use their reasoning skills to problem solve and use varied fluency within maths lessons. 

For Parents in Year 4, please see the guidance available here for more information regarding the statutory Year 4 Multiplication Tests which take place in May.
