All pupils should become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately to problems. (National Curriculum, 2014)
At Weddington, we strive to develop an enjoyment of the subject maths through their learning and the desire to solve problems. Sharing, discussing and listening is a big part of our mathematical learning environment and we aim to give children the confidence to talk about the how and why they have used certain processes and strategies.
We at Weddington have not only embraced the new curriculum, but have introduced a new ‘Mastery’ approach to our lessons. The ‘White Rose’ scheme of learning is taught across the school, allowing pupils to spend longer on key mathematical concepts, most noticeably number. We aim for pupils to see mathematics in a real life context, before moving at an appropriate pace from the concrete/pictorial approach (supported by manipulatives) to the abstract.
At Weddington, a child who has mastered maths will be able to tackle a range of problems with confidence. They will make mistakes but are able to learn from these and explain the processes and strategies they have used to tackle a problem and the reason why they have chosen them.
All at Weddington would like to say a big thank you to ‘Weddy Friends’ for their donation towards new maths resources.
As you can see from the pictures below we were able to buy maths equipment for all of KS1 year 3 and even some for Yr4. We were also able to buy some reasoning mathematical activities for all Year groups.
All the resources we have bought helps to support and promote the ‘Mastery Maths ‘approach we have introduced this year.
So again a big thank you to Weddy Friends your donation has been greatly appreciated.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
