Throughout school we follow the White Rose maths programme of learning. This develops pupils mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills whilst encouraging maths to be taught in a fun and practical way matched to the individual needs of all children. The scheme follows the National Curriculum, ensuring pupils are ready to meet their end of year goals.
We have developed a mastery approach for teaching maths at school, Mastery is based on the idea of children not moving on until they are secure in their understanding of a particular concept. The whole class is taught the same thing, at the same time, with children learning at an appropriate level through support and enrichment. Challenge is offered through higher order questioning and activities that develop deeper understanding, problem solving and reasoning skills.
Below is a brief overview for each year group, if you have any further questions about maths at Whitegate End or you would like to view White Rose in more detail please contact your child's class teacher.
