We are delighted that the new national curriculum for Mathematics complements the ‘Maths Mastery’ approach that we have adopted in Years 1-4. Mathematics is broken down into nine distinct subject areas which progress throughout each year. Both in ‘Maths Mastery’ and the new national curriculum, there is a considerable emphasis on using and applying number, using vocabulary and solving problems.
- Mathematical understanding
- Mathematical thinking
- Mathematical language
This is applied through a concrete, pictorial and an abstract approach. Each lesson involves children regularly using pictures, diennes, cubes, numberlines etc to support their learning and provide a deeper understanding. This leads on to an independent task to show their knowledge of a concept.
