Our aim is for all children to think mathematically, enabling them to reason and solve problems within our school and develop as maths-confident individuals within new and unfamiliar situations.
We see maths-confident children as individuals who make meaningful choices, using appropriate strategies and equipment to access mathematics independently.
Maths is taught through a mastery approach, using the ‘White Rose’ scheme of work. This child-centered approach is then enhanced through challenges from a range of high-quality sources. Within Maths lessons, we use White Rose teaching tools and workbooks for year 1 to 6. Learning is embedded through a spiral curriculum by incorporating the use of resources, problem solving and group work. Our White Rose Maths curriculum systematically builds mathematical knowledge and skills. This means that our children can understand and draw on the knowledge, concepts and procedures they have already learned, and apply these to where they are now in their learning, as well as in the next stage.
Alongside White Rose Maths, we incorporate mathematical reasoning and problem solving to solve practical problems in everyday life in a variety of ways.
