At the Oaks Primary School, we ensure that the three aims of the curriculum are achieved by all pupils to prepare them for their future life. We want the children to:
- become fluent in the basic skills of Mathematics including mental fluency
- reason mathematically by spotting patterns and relationships, making connections and generalisations, explaining their reasoning by developing and justifying their hypotheses and findings using appropriate mathematical language and vocabulary
- solve a variety of problems of different degrees of sophistication
We created our Calculation policy and we use the White Rose Mastery planning in every year group from Reception to Year 6 together with the NCETM Mastery and Greater Depth Documents and the NCETM Progression Maps in Reasoning.
To provide precise teaching, we carry out Headstart pre- and post- assessment tests in each unit of work from year 1 to year 6.
To track pupils’ progress, we assess the children termly using the White Rose Arithmetic and Reasoning tests.
