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.
Our calculation policy builds on the progression of the four operations through the use of dienes manipulatives and place value counters. Third space learning resources support our planning and modelling and triangulate the skills of fluency, problem solving and reasoning.
We also subscribe to MyMaths to enable children to practise their maths skills at home and TT Rock Stars and Numbots to support them in learning their times tables and number bonds
