Maths and Calculation

Maths Curriculum


School uses the mastery approach to teaching maths and follows the 'White Rose' scheme of work.  The calculations policy is on the website below and we strongly encourage the use of models and images to help children gain an understanding of complex mathematical concepts.

The school places an emphasis on understanding and developing a sense of number.  The school uses 'Strawberry Jam and Lemon Curd' to support the development of number bonds and multiplication and division facts and these are sent home weekly for homework.

Maths is taught for a least an hour per day in Year 1 upwards and through continuous provision and discreet lessons in EYFS.

Application of mathematical skills is encouraged through the Cornerstones theme and foundation subjects.
