Mathematics

We aim  to develop a  culture of deep understanding, confidence and competence in maths – a culture that produces strong, secure learning and real progress. Teaching implements a C.P.A. (concrete, pictorial, abstract) approach using White Rose planning units, inspired and informed by world-class research and global maths experts. We develop children’s conceptual understanding enabling them to apply their skills to reason and problem-solve. Pre and post unit tasks are included at strategic points to gauge understanding and retention of key Maths concepts. In addition to our 5 Maths lessons, we practice arithmetic daily (4-a-day) to embed strategies for effective calculation. By building confidence, resilience and a passion for maths, we endeavour to present the subject as an exciting adventure that everyone can enjoy, value and master!
