In Maths, we aim as a school to teach the underlying skills required to tackle increasingly challenging mathematical problems as children progress through
the school. All classes learn and revisit place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division regularly to allow them to embed knowledge and apply
these methods across other areas.
As a school we follow the WhiteRose maths scheme. This gives us a strong coverage of all of the areas of the curriculum at the correct level. We will also be following the Government's Mathematics Recovery curriculum along side this to provide children with more opportunity to consolidate the previous year's learning after spending a long time out of school. Links to these documents are below.
In all classes Maths lessons will include elements of fluency, reasoning and problem solving. This allows children to practice the taught skill and apply it in a range of situations. Lessons will include access to physical resources to support all students' understanding- these include but are not limited to: place value counters, dienes (Base 10), bead strings and place value charts.
Children will access calculations in a range methods, concrete (actual objects and resources) pictorial (picture/visual representations) and abstract (numerical calculations and word problems) as well as explain their thought processes verbally and using writing prompts.
Mathletics is becoming part of the next generation in learning as it helps children achieve great results, while enjoying it.
