The Maths curriculum at Heather is designed to be accessible to all and help to develop confident and independent mathematicians.
We intend for our pupils to be able to apply their mathematical knowledge in a range of contexts, including across the curriculum. We are focused on teaching for mastery through conceptual and procedural variation and focus on the key areas of fluency, problem solving and reasoning.
We follow the White Rose scheme of work and calculation policy which builds on the progression of the four operations through the use of dienes manipulatives and place value counters. White Rose resources are also used to support our planning and modelling and triangulate the skills of fluency, problem solving and reasoning.
We also subscribe to TT Rock Stars and Numbots to enable children to practise their Maths skills at home and support them in learning their times tables and number bonds.
