The National Curriculum:
The National Curriculum for Mathematics (2014) aims to ensure that all pupils:
All children (from Nursery to Year 6) are encouraged to use concrete and pictorial representations to show, prove and explain their abstract thoughts and mathematical working. This also develops an conceptual understanding that enables children to transfer their mathematical skills into real life contexts.
Our whole school environment enables children to use a range of resources and encourages independent reasoning and problem solving.
We aspire for children to leave Grove Primary with a skill set that enables them to reason and problem solve in a technologically evolving world, ensuring they are confident to tackle any mathematical challenges they may face.
The planning process
Our teachers use the long term plans which are then supported by a range of medium term units from sources such as White Rose, Herts4 Learning and Inspire. Our highly skilled teachers use these resources to plan differentiated lessons that meet the developmental needs of each child allowing them to progress to their next stage of learning. Grove Primary works closely with Westwood Primary to share skill sets and subject knowledge to ensure lessons are always of the highest quality.
