We aim to provide a high quality mathematics curriculum, which allows the children to develop the skills they require for everyday life. Maths teaching enables pupils to reason mathematically and to build an appreciation of the power of mathematics, as well as to develop a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
We follow the White Rose Mathematics scheme. The programmes of study are organised into distinct domains, within each year group. There are clear sets of objectives for Reception to Year 6. Teachers make connections within mathematical ideas and across a range of other subjects in order to make the learning relevant. Children are taught reasoning, fluency in number and mental calculation and competence when solving problems. The White Rose scheme is a mastery scheme, encouraging the children to gain a deeper understanding of concepts taught. Children who need more guidance are supported through the use of concrete, pictorial and abstract approaches, and the learners that need challenging further are extended through reasoning and problem-solving questions that flow throughout the whole scheme.
White Rose ensures coverage of the National Curriculum objectives. For further information please visit the White Rose Mathematics website.
