In Reception Class, the children learn about number through the use of Numicon apparatus.
In KS1 (Years 1 and 2) and KS2 (Years 3 – 6), we follow the White Rose Maths planning materials.
Across the school, a CPA approach is used for calculations (concrete-pictorial-abstract), where the children use a range of apparatus, then represent the apparatus using pictures, and finally represent and solve their calculation using a written method.
We place a strong emphasis on discussion during maths lessons and children are encouraged to verbally explain their thinking.
We use a wide range of different reading schemes which have been ‘banded’ so that books with a similar ‘reading age’ are brought together in one box so that we can more easily match the right book to your child.
