Playground Markings Fractions
New curriculum for maths
The new curriculum for maths, introduced by Education Minister Michael Gove will teach younger children maths at a more advanced level than previously before, with a special emphasis on teaching children fractions at 5 years old and teaching multiplication 12 times tables at the age of key stage 2 as 9 year olds. Education Secretary Michael Gove explained,
“This curriculum is a foundation for learning the vital advanced skills that universities and businesses desperately need.”
“Mathematics will have more emphasis on arithmetic, fractions and decimals. There will be a new professional development programme for mathematics teachers at key stage 3, which will help them teach fractions more effectively, with robust evaluation of the results.”
first4playgrounds have designed playground markings which can support the teaching of the new maths curriculum. The colourful Playground Fractions design is a creative, educational and fun way for schools and teachers to introduce the teaching of fractions for 5 years olds, Key Stage1 and upwards .
first4playgrounds also install single times table ladders and full 12 times table ladders which are ideal for KS2 learning.
