Mathematics

Teaching for Mastery

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.

 

  • Number is at the heart of the planning.  A large proportion of time is spent reinforcing number to build competency
  • Children have the opportunity to stay together as they work through the schemes as a whole group.
  • Children are given deeper problems within their own year group rather than rushing on to a new concept.

Concrete-Pictorial-Abstract

 

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.
