Mathematics at Mapperley
Mathematics teaching at Mapperley is geared towards enabling each child l to develop within their capabilities; not only the mathematics skills and understanding required for later life, but also an enthusiasm and fascination about maths itself. We aim to increase children's confidence in maths, so that they are able to express themselves and their ideas using the language of maths with assurance We are continually aiming to raise the standards of achievement of the children at our school.
White Rose Maths
We use White Rose Maths schemes of work and materials to support our teaching of mathematics at Mapperley.
The schemes of learning outline what children need to learn during each term to master the learning objectives laid out by the National Curriculum. Resources are differentiated and designed to be enjoyable, engaging and varied to help pupils develop a love of learning and work towards mastery,
At the heart of their resources and frameworks is the motto:
"Everyone Can Do Maths: Everyone Can!"
The rationale behind this approach is helping children work towards maths mastery, encouraging a growth mindset in both teachers and learners. Our approach to teaching Maths means making sure all children have the same opportunities to learn and the support they need to fully grasp concepts. We also focus on making maths fun for children, helping them to find enjoyment in number problems. Because when children are engaged in learning and enjoying maths, and deep learning happens.
We follow the calculation policies aligned with the White Rose Scheme of Learning. In these documents (see files) you can see the methods and models used to teach calculation throughout the school.
