We want our children to be able to notice similarities and differences in the world around them and everyday life. We also want our children to be able to make links with other subjects and understand that maths is a part of everyday life. They will have the resilience to persevere and find answers through a mixture of adult led and self-directed learning by considering the big question and developing a growth mindset through all experiences they encounter.
The schools follow a Mastery Approach in Mathematics, using a ‘Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract’ approach. This enables all children to experience hands-on learning when discovering new mathematical topics, and allows them to have clear models and images to aid their understanding. Arithmetic and basic math skills are practised daily to ensure key mathematical concepts are embedded and children can recall this information to see the links between topics in Maths.
We use whole class approach supporting, scaffolding and challenging adapting the learning to the needs of the pupil. White rose, power maths – fluent in five in the mornings.
