At Nyewood Junior School we deliver a maths curriculum that is accessible to all and will maximise the development of every child's ability and academic achievement. Because we recognise the importance of English and Maths as the basis for all learning, our pupils are taught daily in dedicated sessions. Maths teaching and learning strives to provide every child with the skills, knowledge and understanding required in order for them to achieve their full potential in the methods in order to provide a sound basis for calculation. We also focus on using and applying mathematical skills in practical problem solving situations within real and meaningful contexts. By offering a wide range of mathematical modern world. We emphasise the importance of developing secure mental maths strategies alongside formal written challenges across all ability ranges, we are able to ensure that every child is challenged to extend their knowledge and skills. Where possible, children have the opportunity to use and apply mathematics across the curriculum.
We follow the 'White Rose' maths Mastery programme, although this is adapted slightly to allow us to meet the needs of a high achieving school. We recognise the importance of embedding maths skills across the curriculum and we are currently exploring methods used in 'maths mastery'. We implement mastery methods across the whole school in maths but fully engage in the mastery approach in Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5. For this reason maths is taught in class groups in Year 3 and sets in years 4,5 and 6.
To ensure that all children are engaging in learning experiences that meet these expectations we monitor progress carefully. We also believe that pupil voice is a useful tool for assessment; we ask children questions about their learning in order to assess and improve learning experiences.
