At our school we want children to enjoy their Maths learning and progress through the curriculum at a pace that challenges them, but also ensures they have consolidated their understanding. We don’t follow a scheme of work for maths, instead we adapt planning and teaching to meet the needs of our children.
Within lessons, children take part in games, activities that promote mental maths skills, activities that allow for talk, reasoning and mastery. Pupils will use manipulatives and images to support learning alongside jottings and pictorial methods. By the end of year 6, all children who are considered ‘Secondary Ready’ will be secure with a compact standard written method for each operation.
