Children are encouraged to use previous mathematical knowledge and make links between different mathematical concepts. Throughout our school children are regularly exposed to increasingly complex problem solving, which allows them to develop their mathematical knowledge and their ability to work logically. Mathematical vocabulary is developed throughout school and children are encouraged to use it when explaining their methods, thinking or proving their understanding.
Our aims are:
The National Curriculum is at the heart of our mathematics planning and implemented through White Rose and Big Maths framework. Mathematical topics are taught in blocks, with plans produced and reviewed on a weekly basis to determine progress and next steps in learning.
Teachers believe in the importance of mathematics and that the vast majority of children can succeed in learning mathematics in line with national expectations.
Teacher assessment and regular pupil progress meetings, NFER termly tests in Key Stage 1
Weekly CLIC and Learn It’s in Key Stage One, tracked through Big Maths site.
Regular learning walks, planning and book scrutiny, pupil discussions
