As a school, we place emphasis on teaching Maths using a Maths Mastery approach. We place emphasis on children learning to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We use Maths No Problem Maths textbooks and workbooks in school. To find out more, visit to watch parent videos all about how we teach Maths at St Luke's.

The table below highlights the textbook and chapters that we are learning in Year 5. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. If you wish to purchase a copy of the Maths No Problem books, these are available to order at


Parents and children can help at home by:

  • Continuing to practise the current (or previous) focus skills (see below table).
  • Practise using the IXL ( and My Maths ( online learning tools.
  • Ensuring all times tables up to 12 x 12 are learnt and can be used fluently.
