Maths

We embrace the Mastery approach to teaching mathematics. Our teachers ensure that mathematical skills are taught every day following the Number Sense approach in EYFS and the Mastery approach in KS1. Children are taught through whole-class interactive teaching, where the focus is on all children working together on the same lesson content at the same time, as happens in Shanghai and several other regions that teach maths successfully. This ensures that all can master concepts before moving to the next part of the curriculum sequence, allowing no child to be left behind. Real life opportunities to solve mathematical practical challenges are sought daily. They also use cross curricular opportunities to develop pupils’ mathematical fluency. Our pupils understand the importance of mathematics, are encouraged to be confident in numeracy and to apply the skills that they learn to simple problem solving. The activities cover a wide range of mathematical knowledge, many with an emphasis on practical work. In each lesson there is a short and simple mental maths session. We build on skills and understanding in a step by step and progressive way and continue to develop place value, the four number operations and the understanding of fractional parts. We are part of the NCETM Maths North West 3 Hub and we continue to develop our practice in line with theirs. There are extra activities throughout the year to promote mathematical skills and thinking.
