Maths


Through a well sequenced curriculum both within an academic year and throughout key stages, we want our children to be fluent mathematicians who make connections between mathematical concepts.

Now what?

Intelligent Talkers

Insatiable Readers

Impeccably Behaved

Inclusive Citizens

  • Through well sequenced call and response, pupil’s use the correct mathematical vocabulary.
  • Vocabulary is well selected and explicitly planned to support fluent mathematicians.
  • Explicit ‘talk time’ in mathematics supports pupil’s ability to articulate their understanding of mathematical concepts and make connections between areas of learning.
  • Through explicit teaching of vocabulary, pupils make connections between written questions and what are they being asked to do.
  • Through a well sequenced curriculum, pupils are exposed to a variety of written and visual information that they are empowered to decode.
  •  Pupils are fluent mathematicians who are automatic in their arithmetic skills. This removes the arithmetic barrier when applying their skills to reasoning and problem solving.
  • Pupils are given opportunities every lesson to recall and retain their learning. This will increase memory and fluency.
  • Knowledge organisers and visuals which are built on year and year support a solid understanding of mathematical concepts for all pupils.
  • A well sequenced curriculum builds in recall from previous years and supports understanding over time. 
  • A well sequenced written calculation policy supports transitions between year groups and ensures consistent teaching throughout.
