Intent of our Maths curriculum, provision and enrichment

 

The intent of our Maths curriculum is to develop deep structural knowledge of fundamental concepts using accurate vocabulary to communicate. Varied and frequent practice will build procedural fluency and enable pupils to make connections within mathematics and beyond. Pupils confidently manipulate this knowledge, ask questions and apply this to familiar and unfamiliar contexts using a range of representations. They will flourish as creative and curious mathematicians, empowered to navigate their future life responsibly. 

Implementation  

 

  • Mastery approach to whole class teaching – using the CPA (concrete, pictorial, abstract) approach 

  • Wide and rich selection of planning and teaching resources- White Rose, NCTEM PD materials, Times Tables Rock Stars, Maths shed, Espresso 

  • Children access the same concept at the same time with challenge provided through variation and opportunities to explore concepts further 

  • In EYFS, KS1 and KS2, Maths is taught discretely and daily with continuous provision within and beyond the classroom. 

  • Afternoon daily discreet fluency practise sessions: number bonds and times tables fluency activities 

  • Sentence stems are used to support and develop children’s use of mathematical vocabulary 

  • Relevant mathematical vocabulary and visual aids clearly incorporated within interactive maths walls 

  • AfL strategies used to determine where extra support/challenge is appropriate resulting in teacher/TA-led interventions 

  • ‘Mistakes’ are acknowledged as part of the learning process and misconceptions addressed. 

  • Evidence of learning is recorded in a variety of ways e.g. books, displays, photos, reflective comments, presentations 

  • Actively promote Maths linked careers through Aspiration maths lessons, assemblies and events 

  • STEM events throughout the year 

  • Use of our environment and resources at lunchtime to develop a love of Maths 

  • Maths workshops for parents 

  • Maths focused trips and visits to our woodland classroom 

Inclusivity 

 

  • Valuing every child as a unique individual, teaching and learning will be adapted to ensure equitable provision, representing all protective characteristics. 

 

Social, Moral and Spiritual and Cultural development 

 

  • Within our Maths curriculum we explore and make connections with a balance of spiritual, moral, social and cultural aspects in order to prepare our children for life in modern Britain and our diverse world.
