At Maidensbridge Primary School, our maths curriculum is designed to provide children with not only the skills for the next stage in their education but also with the skills they need for the wider world. We understand that the basic skills of mathematics are vital for the life opportunities of our children in later life. We want all children to develop a love of maths and to feel undaunted by mathematical problems and challenges. We want children to experience a sense of awe and wonder as they solve a problem for the first time, discover different solutions and make links between different areas of mathematics.
Therefore, our curriculum has been developed to offer a broad range of experiences designed to provide pupils with mathematical understanding, skills and knowledge. It strives to ensure every child can achieve their very best in mathematics.
Our mathematics teaching follows the national curriculum using planning provided by the White-Rose Maths Hub and their progression document guides. Maths is divided into units of work for each year group. We supplement these resources by drawing from a wide variety of other resources to support the teaching of the concepts to ensure that we deliver Maths in an interesting and engaging way. Teaching is structured in a way that enables children to master mathematical concepts. Teachers use a CPA (concrete, pictorial, abstract) sequence and ensure that children have opportunities to develop fluency, reasoning and problem solving.
Please see below the planning and progression of maths for each year group and each term, from Reception to Year 6.
