Our Maths leader is Mrs O’Donnell.

Our Maths curriculum is based upon White- Rose provides coverage of the National Curriculum objectives in a cyclical approach to embed each aspect and deepen understanding. This approach promotes upside down and inside out mathematics for each year group. We place an emphasis on revisiting the vital sticky knowledge for each year group to embed fluency skills. To support the teaching of reasoning and problem solving, we have recently had a whole school shift towards the bar model. We recognise the importance of revisiting to ensure learning is embedded into long-term memory, particularly for the children we teach.

Across school, we use an 'I do, we do, you do' lesson model which follows Rosenshine's Principles of Instruction, including daily, weekly and monthly reviews in the form of a 'Rapid Recall', introducing material in small steps, modelling and scaffolding learning and providing pupils with independent practice.

Teachers provide children with appropriately pitched tasks to ensure all children are challenged appropriately.

All teachers follow a Long-Term Plan based on the scheme of work from White Rose for their year group. This is organised in an interleaved structure, with pupils dipping in and out of topic areas throughout the year until all content is taught by the end of the Summer Term. This organisation promotes pupils with making connections between topics and supports knowledge retention as topics are continuously revisited.

We follow a CPA model in school with all new concepts being introduced with the support of concrete materials, gradually reduced to pictorial representations and finally abstract understanding.
