Our Ethos for Mathematical Learning at Grove 

 

Key Principles - Our 5 key pillars

 

Within our math curriculum, we aim for each of our math sessions to support the children with the following five principles of their learning. 

5 Pillars of Mathematical Learning

 

Our Curriculum Offer 

 

 

At Westwood and Grove Primary, we  want our children to be aspirational, be the best they can be, be supportive of others and be proud of who they are!

 

Our curriculum provides children with opportunities to achieve academically, as well as developing a person and a citizen.We aim for all children to be prepared for their next stage in learning, for all children to succeed and for some this may be to succeed against the odd.

 

In math:

  • Children acquire and practice key skills including; arithmetic, times tables etc.

  • Have opportunities to develop fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills.

 

We also strongly believe children learn best when there is a shift from short term memory to long term memory. For this reason, our math curriculum includes opportunities to ensure depth of learning

 

When possible and appropriate curriculum links are developed, maths will be explored and applied across the whole curriculum and children will be able to apply knowledge and skills across the curriculum.

The National Curriculum for Mathematics (2014) aims to ensure that all pupils:

 

become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately 

reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language

can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

 

We aspire for children to leave Westwood and 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. As such, our whole school environment enables children to use a range of resources and encourages independent reasoning and problem solving. 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 a conceptual understanding that enables children to transfer their mathematical skills into real life contexts.

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.
