At Leechpool we use the White Rose Hub Maths Scheme as the basis of our curriculum. This reflects the importance we place on the learning of basic number skills and the building of number fluency.
Children have access to a variety of mathematical apparatus designed to aid their calculation with numbers. As children progress in their ability to solve mathematical calculations we teach the children specific ways to record their working out. It is important that children progress through each stage of the progression chart, shown in the Leechpool Calculation Policy, as this ensures they fully grasp the mathematical concepts that underpin the calculations they are doing. Children receive oral and written feedback and are given RAP tasks to help correct any misconceptions and/or build on their learning and provide the next steps.
Below is the overview of the computing curriculum at Leechpool.
The above overview will be implemented by the development of the progression of skills in maths highlighted in the documents below.
- The impact of our mathematics curriculum is that children understand the relevance of what they are learning in relation to real world concepts.
- We have fostered an environment where Maths is fun and it is OK to be ‘wrong’ because the journey to finding an answer is most important.
- Our children have a growth mindset and they make measurable progression against their own targets.
- Our maths books are packed with a range of activities showing evidence of fluency, reasoning and problem solving.
- Our feedback and interventions are supporting children to strive to be the best mathematicians they can be ensuring a greater proportion of children are on track.
- Children ‘have a go’ and choose the equipment they need to help them to learn along with the strategies they think are best suited to each problem.
