To allow the children to learn new skills year on year and build on these skills as they progress through school. Inspire learning through excellent teaching practices that build on prior learning and allow for repetition and progression of skills that build upon high starting points.
Our implementation is developed through secure understanding of the curriculum and subject area.
Teaching and Learning, Content and Sequence
For maths, our long term planning follows the White Rose Maths materials and calculation policy.
We use this to support our children with their knowledge, skills and understanding of the subject.
We adapt where appropriate, to suit all learners.
We place a large emphasis on pupil engagement and design lessons which involve all pupils using questioning and modelling at the centre of every lesson.
To implement our intent, we ensure that our children are invested in their learning and are making a positive contribution to their lessons.
Leadership, Assessment and Feedback
Assessment informs the teaching and learning sequence, and children work on the objectives they are assessed as being at.
Children who not making the required progress are given extra support through booster sessions and support in class in order to meet our INTENT of developing pupils academically.
Feedback is given on children’s learning in line with our feedback policy. Formative assessment within every lesson helps teachers to identify the children who need more support to achieve the intended outcome and who are ready for greater stretch and challenge through planned questioning or additional activities.
In order to support teacher judgments, children are assessed using current and reliable tests in line with the national curriculum for maths.
Analysis of any tests that the children complete is undertaken and fed into future planning.
A mathematical concept or skill has been mastered when a child can show it in multiple ways, using the mathematical language to explain their ideas, and can independently apply the concept to new problems in unfamiliar situations.
Children demonstrate quick recall of facts and procedures. This includes the recollection of the times tables.
The flexibility and fluidity to move between different contexts and representations of mathematics.
The ability to recognise relationships and make connections in mathematics.
Children show confidence in believing that they will achieve.
Children show a high level of pride in the presentation and understanding of the work.
