The White Rose Maths scheme has been implemented across Early Years and KS1 since September 2021 to ensure sufficient curriculum coverage. The 3 aims of the maths national curriculum are introduced in Year R and embedded at key stage 1. Daily Maths Meetings reinforce key concepts through activities, including the use of ICT and rapid recall tasks. Children show mastery of concepts by explaining their reasoning. Children of all abilities are given regular opportunities for problem solving activities.
The CPA (concrete, pictorial, abstract) approach is used throughout the school for children of all abilities. Working walls show modelled examples of how children can approach tasks using the CPA approach. Children refer to the working walls to enable them to be independent in their learning and next steps.
Pupil voice questionnaires show that children enjoy maths. All children asked say that they feel `happy’ and `good’ about maths and that `it is fun’. They talk about how their teachers help them, what they are trying to get better at, and how they know if they have been successful in their learning. Children are happy to show their maths work in their books and displayed in classrooms and take pride in it.
