Maths at Dersingham Primary!

At Dersingham we use the Abacus planning framework to plan exciting, stimulating and engaging lessons to challenge and meet the needs' of our pupils. The Abacus planning framework is fully compatible with the new National Curriculum (2014).


The new National Curriculum (2014) for Mathematics has three main aims. These are to ensure that all pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.


The Yearly Mathematics Overview for each year group are available below. If you have any questions regarding Mathematics at Dersingham, please contact the School Office and ask to make an appointment with Mrs Anderson the Mathematics Co-Ordinator.
