Maths at Petersgate is an exciting journey achieved through exploration, practice and application over time from Early Years to Year 2.  We aim to create independent, motivated mathematicians who are well equipped to apply their learning to the wider world.


We aspire for all children:

  • To become fluent in the fundamentals of maths by recalling and applying knowledge accurately
  • To develop the ability to reason and explain their understanding using mathematical vocabulary
  • To solve a variety of problems by being resilient in seeking solutions.

Years 1 & 2


We follow the Hampshire Model of mathematics in Key Stage 1, to ensure continuity and progression.

The domains (Number and Place Value, Addition and Subtraction, Multiplication and Division, Fractions, Geometry including shape, position and direction, Measurement including Time, Money and Statistics are taught in three milestones across Years 1 and 2.
  • Milestone 1 from September to November.
  • Milestone 2 from November to January.
  • Milestone 3 February to April.

The summer term revisits and consolidates previous taught domains to ensure all children have the best opportunity to achieve Age Related Expectation, (ARE). 

Children are taught through whole class and small groups. Formative assessment takes place during the lesson and is used to inform a child’s ‘Next Steps’ and any consolidation that is needed in learning. Children’s learning is recorded electronically, usually with a photograph, and explanation of the learning which is then uploaded onto Seesaw for parents and carers to see, and comment on if they wish to do so.

Both Tapestry and Seesaw can be used at home for parents and carers to share with class teachers what children have been learning at home too.
