Practice, Repeat & Refine
The Ninja Maths ethos is Practice, Repeat & Refine…
It is very important for a child to practice maths ideally every day. Even during a holiday a ninja will exercise to keep their muscles and movements fast and nimble.
A child should solve maths problems over and over again until it becomes second nature. For example example fractions: multiply, divide, add and subtract until it becomes easy.
A ninja does not learn a kick then hope to remember it for future use. Once learnt, a ninja will repeat that kick over and over again until it becomes second nature.
A child should aim to improve their maths & moves each time they repeat a type of question. For example, refining how they articulate their working out to get all the marks.
A ninja does not tolerate a sloppy kick. Once learnt, a ninja will seek to refine even the smallest of details.
A Recent Review…
Ninja Maths worksheets are interesting and engaging resources that provide a perfect blend of consolidation, practice and challenge with a high-interest level.
Teachers can use these useful and robust worksheets as a snapshot of pupil learning but also as assessment tools to provide evidence of pupil achievement and attainment.
I use them as class activities and, especially, as differentiated activities for 2 high-attaining pupils in my class who seek and thrive on extra pace and challenge. They love them!

The English Key Stage 2 Curriculum
The three main aims of the English KS2 Maths Curriculum are;
1. Fluency in Maths
A child should become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics. This is encouraged through varied and frequent practice – which is the cornerstone of Ninja Maths. A child should be able to solve increasingly complex problems throughout Primary school, and exhibit understanding of key concepts.
2. Mathematical Reasoning
Mathematical reasoning includes being able follow lines of thought, and to identify generalisations – e.g. how multiplication can be used across integers, fractions, and decimals. A child should also become fluent in the language of mathematics.
3. Solving Problems
A child should use their growing knowledge-base to solve problems using a variety of skills. This includes breaking down problems into a series of smaller steps to solve a larger problem
