At Batheaston Church School our Maths curriculum provides our pupils with the necessary knowledge and skills required to use and apply maths within a range of contexts. We want every child to see themselves as a mathematician, with high levels of engagement and the confidence to tackle maths concepts, without fear of getting it wrong. Teachers emphasise the importance of understanding how or why, through a deepened understanding of numbers and reasoning. The journey to mathematical problems can be more exciting than getting to the end goal of a an answer.
Teachers plan using White Rose Maths, which is a research based scheme, incorporating the National Curriculum requirements, broken into blocks over the year. This approach provides teachers and pupils the time and resources to broaden a child’s understanding of number. Key themes are revisited and taught within a range of contexts so as to ensure pupils have a sound knowledge that will underpin key concepts such as calculation, measure, statistics, fractions, geometry and time.
Happy Number Day 2022!
