Maths

Maths at Kilnwood Vale SchoolMaths picture1

The maths curriculum at Kilnwood Vale Primary School follows the pedagogy of ‘Teaching for Mastery’. Our children learn through the explicit teaching of small steps, operating under one learning intention. Within this, mathematical, conceptual knowledge is deepened through effective questioning. This is supported by the explicit teaching of mathematical vocabulary and exposing children to conceptual and non-conceptual variation enabling mathematical connections to be made and applied through maths reasoning.

Giving children solid foundations and understanding in the concept of number is at the forefront of our maths practice. In Key Stage 1 and 2, we follow the White Rose Maths scheme, which believes in creating; 'a culture that produces strong, secure learning and real progress.' This scheme is aimed at providing children of all ability levels challenge through developing mastery skills across all areas of the mathMaths picture2s curriculum. We use White Rose planning and resources, in conjunction with concrete apparatus as a tool to further develop children’s mathematical understanding.

We teach mathematical concepts in small steps to ensure children have the time to master a new skill or concept before moving on to the next. Through a blend of practical, pictorial; and abstract experiences, children develop their fluency, understanding and reasoning. Talk is an important part of maths learning, with stem sentences, discussion and mathematical vocabulary taught explicitly to all children.

 

During lessons we use the CPA (Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract) method, which involves using actual objects for children to add, subtract, multiply or divide. They then Maths picture3progress onto using pictorial representations of the object, and ultimately, abstract symbols. The CPA approach helps children learn new ideas and build on their existing knowledge by introducing abstract concepts in a more familiar and tangible way. 

We believe children’s chances of success are maximised if they develop deep and lasting understanding of mathematical procedures and concepts. If all children are inspired in mathematics, we will nurture and enable everyone to achieve excellence, together.
