We teach Mathematics in accordance with the National Curriculum and guided by the recenty issued DfE guidance for KS1 and KS2.
Our aim is for all children to develop a love of learning mathematics, and a deep sense of numeracy by honing these skills:
As a school we have adopted the mastery approach to teaching maths. A mastery approach means topics are broken down into small steps and that all children have a secure understanding of a topic before moving on to the next. There is no point in trying to understand multiplication before you fully understand addition!
This approach promotes deeper understanding and therefore enjoyment as the children feel more confident and successful and are guided to think ever more deeply rather than just rushing to finish a line of sums,
