For the critical subject of Mathematics we use the White Rose Maths Hub because we want every student to embrace mathematics regardless of their initial aptitude or enthusiasm. We encourage children to reason mathematically and follow a line of enquiry, observing patterns and mathematical relationships as they go. We expect the children to apply their knowledge in a variety of ways so that they can become problem solvers and independent thinkers. This is reflected in their use of shape in art, measurement in DT, and the variety of counts in music and dance, as well as in direct applications such as telling the time. Indeed, White Rose allows for mathematical mastery and promotes genuine depth of learning for all.
Our aim is for pupils to become fluent in the fundamentals of maths through repetition and frequent practice of basic concepts which get progressively more complex as confidence grows.
