Loving, learning, growing together with Jesus
The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils become fluent, can reason and can solve problems.
What a Maths lesson looks like in our school:
In order to support the children's progress and ensure consistent teaching in calculation we use the White Rose Maths Hub Calculation Policy. This is based on the Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract (CPA) approach whereby children use a range of different representations to support their learning by moving from objects, to pictures then symbols and words.
The expectation is that the majority of pupils will move through the programmes of study at broadly the same pace. However, decisions about when to progress will always be based on the security of pupils’ understanding and their readiness to progress to the next stage. Pupils who grasp concepts rapidly will be challenged through further problem solving and reasoning before any acceleration through new content. Those who are not sufficiently fluent with earlier material will consolidate their understanding, including through additional practice, before moving on.
