Mathematics

In mathematics at St Anne’s our aim is to ensure all pupils: 

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately to problems  
  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.  
  • Can solve problems by applying their mathematics in a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.  
At St Anne’s we use a mastery approach for teaching Maths.  Mastering maths means pupils acquiring a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject. The whole class is taught the same thing, at the same time, with children learning at an appropriate level through support and enrichment. We extend children through depth rather than acceleration. 

We strive to ensure that Mathematics work is meaningful and purposeful.  We wish pupils to feel confident and competent when using mathematics to enable them to make sense of the world and to solve real-life problems. At St Anne’s, we teach children calculations using a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach. It is vital that all children have access to resources so that they acquire deep understanding of mathematics.
 

St Anne’s follows the White Rose maths curriculum to ensure progression, coverage and depth of knowledge for all learners. Please refer to the White Rose scheme of work for further details.
