Mathematics at St Oswald's
At St Oswald's C of E Academy, we believe that all children can be successful in Mathematics. Our mastery based curriculum is intended to provide all with a deep, long term, secure and adaptable understanding of each area, which inspires and challenging pupils at every level. We want our children to be able to apply their mathematical skills and knowledge confidently in a range of different contexts, including real life situations. Children will be provided with a variety of mathematical opportunities, which will enable them to apply and be creative with new knowledge.
We aim for all pupils to:
We use the National Curriculum, which shows the learning content for each year group. It can be found here...
Each year, we start with place value; in other words, the value of each digit in a number. Once our children have a secure understanding of this, they have the foundation for all other mathematical concepts such as addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, fractions, geometry, statistics and measurement.
We use White Rose Maths small steps to progression, which are a series of learning objectives that children need to master in order to progress onto more challenging lessons. We ensure that our curriculum is carefully sequenced so that each lesson builds on the previous one. Our teaching and learning resources are based on the White Rose Maths materials and are supplemented by Maths No Problem and Focus Maths.
