We use the White Rose Maths Planning as a basis for our maths work. These support a mastery approach to learning and have been designed to support the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum.
We believe that all children when introduced to a new concept should have the opportunity to build competency by taking this approach.
Concrete- children should have the opportunity to use concrete objects and manipulative to help them understand what they are doing.
Pictorial - alongside this children should use pictorial representations. These representations can then be used to help reason and solve problems.
Abstract - both concrete and pictorial representation should support children's understanding of abstract methods.
