At Frampton Cotterell C of E Primary, we strive to teach a full and rich mathematics curriculum to enable all of our children to become happy and confident mathematicians. We endeavour to create a culture, which encourages our children to view themselves as capable mathematicians with an enjoyment for the subject.
White Rose, AET and NCETM spine materials inform teachers’ planning. Children are streamed in attainment sets from Year 2. This enables teachers to provide appropriately pitched learning opportunities to support, deepen and extend the children’s mathematical understanding. During lessons children learn and consolidate skills and knowledge through a sequential and progress led approach. Teaching and learning follow a varied fluency, reasoning and problem solving order. Within our lessons teachers use a range of concrete, pictorial and abstract resources to support learning.
The mathematics curriculum is divided into the nine key areas of the National Curriculum and are measured against Age Related Expectations and Standards:
Number and Place Value
Addition and Subtraction
Fractions, Decimals and Percentages
Ratio and Proportion
In addition to maths learning during the school day, the children also have weekly opportunities to develop and consolidate their mental maths and reasoning skills. These opportunities aim to build upon the skill of calculating in their heads as well as securing the knowledge of some mathematical facts.
At Frampton Cotterell we strive to ensure that our children’s progress and attainment in maths are in line with or exceed age related expectations (AREs).
Impact of teaching and learning is measured against AREs as well as SATs in years 2 and 6. We regularly monitor and assess the children’s progress and attainment through our school’s assessment system in addition to local and national data comparisons. We use pupil conferencing alongside ‘book looks’ to assess the children’s understanding.
