We aim to make maths exciting, enjoyable and stimulating. We provide high quality maths teaching, which is engaging, interactive and builds upon children’s prior learning. As a school we have invested in the White Rose Maths Scheme. Every resource has been carefully designed to ensure it addresses the three key aims of fluency, reasoning and problem solving and follows the principles of teaching for mastery. It is designed to support pupils to be able to perform simpler tasks so they can then move on to perform more complex tasks. For example, we cannot expect pupils to add two numbers together before they understand what each individual number represents. This provides pupils with a deep understanding of the subject through a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach. This ensures pupils fully understand what they are learning. We have always put tremendous effort and resources into getting children to have instant recall of their multiplication table facts. Being fluent in calculation and knowing multiplication tables by heart are a maths essential. Knowing the multiplication tables (and their associated division facts) supports mathematical learning and understanding. Those children who have a strong grasp of them tend to be more self-assured when learning new concepts.
