MATHEMATICS

At Hawksworth CE Primary School, we teach Mathematics using the White Rose Maths (WRM) schemes of learning, which we adapt to suit the needs of the children.

 

White Rose Maths scheme

The WRM scheme is well-sequenced, with each unit covered in depth, and the content applied in different ways in subsequent units for consolidation. We teach mathematics using a mastery approach, where new concepts are introduced in small chunks that build in complexity, and the whole-class are taught together to ensure that all achieve within each year group expectations.

In addition to daily Maths lessons, we also utilise Times Tables Rock Stars and Century Online.  Times Tables Rock Stars is a carefully sequenced online program of daily times tables practice and Century is a Personalized learning online program which is used to support Maths homework across KS2. 

Our Mathematics Calculation Policy has been taken and adapted from the White Rose Maths scheme. We have found their calculation policy to be the one which works for the needs of our children and suits the way in which we teach Mathematics. The use of concrete resources and visuals underpins this calculation policy.

The policy goes through:

  • Addition
  • Subtraction
  • Multiplication
  • Division

Each operation is broken down into skills for the year group and shows recommended models and visuals to support the teaching of the corresponding concepts alongside.
