Curriculum Intent, Implementation and Impact
At Wroughton Infant school, we aspire for all of our learners to approach mathematics with confidence and determination and feel comfortable to make mistakes and learn from them. A high-quality mathematics education provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
White Rose Maths
White Rose Maths is an organisation that provides maths resources and Schemes of Learning for pupils of all ages, from early years to secondary school. The Schemes of Learning (SOL) outline yearly frameworks that break down what children need to learn during each week of each term to master the learning objectives laid out by the National Curriculum. And resources that are aligned with the White Rose Maths frameworks are designed to be enjoyable, engaging and varied, to help pupils develop a love of learning and work towards mastery with differentiated resources.
What defines White Rose Maths, more than their resources and frameworks, is their approach to teaching maths. At the heart of their resources and frameworks is the motto “Everyone Can Do Maths: Everyone Can!” — a slogan that we wholeheartedly agree with!
What do calculations look like in school?
We are active members of the Mobius Maths Hub and are part of the four-year teaching for mastery in maths development programme.
The mastery approach to the teaching and learning supports all children to achieve the small step in learning through adaptive teaching methods. As we develop this approach we aim to deliver a maths curriculum that focuses on four key areas that are highlighted in the national curriculum. Please do come and talk to us if you want to find out more.
Understanding Fluency Problem Solving Reasoning
How can I help at home?
Short, regular practice of the key number facts at home will be crucial to the children becoming more fluent in their mathematical learning. They are an important foundation which will help children to progress and develop their mathematical skills.
Digital Activities - These can be put on a phone, tablet or computer.
Reception - Children can practice subitising on the FREE White Rose Maths 1-minute maths app. Regular practice will support your child's understanding of number.
Year 1 and Year 2 - Children can regularly complete challenges at home on the Numbots app or website. The games on this site will support your child's understanding of number and calculation. Your child's login is stuck in their reading record.
For those that prefer to support your child on paper -
Here are some paper printouts that support your child's learning - Maths at Home Printouts.
