Math

As part of our Unique approach to math teaching, we have adapted a series of resources to support our pupils in their quest to become confident and competent mathematicians.

 

Using a combination of:

  • Maths No Problem
  • White Rose Maths
  • The Mastery Approach

We are developing our curriculum to be as unique as our children, providing them with the skills and strategies to help them navigate the end of Key Stage 2 expectations.

 

 

Teaching Mastery

 

Coherence

Lessons are broken down into small connected steps that gradually unfold the concept, providing access for all children and leading to a generalisation of the concept and the ability to apply the concept to a range of contexts.

 

Representation and Structure

Representations used in lessons expose the mathematical structure being taught, the aim being that students can do the maths without recourse to the representation

 

Mathematical Thinking

If taught ideas are to be understood deeply, they must not merely be passively received but must be worked on by the student: thought about, reasoned with and discussed with others

 

Fluency

Quick and efficient recall of facts and procedures and the flexibility to move between different contexts and representations of mathematics

 

Variation

Variation is twofold. It is firstly about how the teacher represents the concept being taught, often in more than one way, to draw attention to critical aspects, and to develop deep and holistic understanding. It is also about the sequencing of the episodes, activities and exercises used within a lesson and follow up practice, paying attention to what is kept the same and what changes, to connect the mathematics and draw attention to mathematical relationships and structure.
