St Gregory's Catholic Primary School


Welcome to the Maths Page!


'Good mathematics is not about how many answers you's about how you behave and persevere when you don't know'


Here you will find lots of useful information about mathematics and the way that it is taught at St Gregory's.


The calculation policy is a really useful link as it sets out the methods we use to teach addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. 


If you want to know more about maths in a specific year group then please click on the relevant link below.

This year we are completing the Liverpool Counts Quality Mark. The Liverpool Counts Quality Mark is part of a varied programme of strategies targeted at improving maths results for children throughout the city. The specific remit of the Quality Mark is to tackle the negative attitudes which are prevalent in many areas of our society towards numeracy and mathematics.


By completing this Quality Mark we aim to challenge these widely held views and promote a culture where people readily understand the impact good numeracy skills and mathematics qualifications can have on the social, financial, health and employment aspects of their lives.


Mrs Roney is our Maths Champion and to help her achieve the aims of this Quality Mark she has maths ambassadors from Y2-Y6 to help her. We look forward to your support and involvement over the coming months with the exciting things that we have planned.

We successfully achieved the Silver Quality Mark! Our maths ambassadors enjoyed a day out visiting the Liverpool museum to collect our award. Well done everybody!



There are lots of books that have mathematical themes.   Have a look at this website to see how you can teach your child all about Maths -  through story books!!

Multiplication Tables


In September 2014 we saw the implementation of the new National Curriculum. This new National Curriculum identified the following changes in regards to maths:


• By the end of year 4, pupils should be able to recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12x12


• There will no longer be a separate calculator paper in Key Stage 2 SATs so mental calculations are gaining even greater prominence in primary schools.


These changes mean it is important for the children to learn their times tables facts and to be able to recall them quickly and accurately. To support children's learning of multiplication tables we will be introducing a whole school policy which sets out what multiplication tables will be taught in each year group.  We hope that this drive to be fluent with multiplication tables will give children a distinct advantage in their end of Key Stage 2 SATs tests.


Below are links to websites to support you and your child with the teaching and learning of multiplication tables.
