The National Curriculum and Early Years Outcomes programmes of study form the foundations of our Mathematics curriculum. Pupils have an understanding of maths which provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically and an appreciation of the power of mathematics. Maths gives pupils an opportunity to practise, recall and apply fundamentals of to increasingly complex problems.
Maths is led by a subject leader who supports staff with the implementation of the Maths curriculum following the White Rose Maths Hub. Through a combination of whole-class teaching, group and independent work, children are given the opportunity to practice their skills and develop their knowledge through a wide range of activities. Children develop and embed their knowledge and understanding of concepts through fluency, reasoning and problem-solving.
Spotlight, Beam, Times Tables RockStars, Testbase and Numbots are used to consolidate understanding and motivate the children. Practical maths and apparatus are used to support the teaching and learning of concepts with classroom displays promoting the vocabulary specific to current learning, place value, four operations and times tables.
Learners will have the knowledge and skills to work like a mathematician. They will make sustained progress in maths and have an understanding of how the number system works and how it can be applied to a variety of real life concepts.
