Mathematics at Whitemoor

The only way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics.
 
Paul Halmos

At Whitemoor Academy, the teaching and learning of mathematics is a high priority as we recognise it as an essential skill for life. Our children are taught the threes main areas of the National Curriculum through a mastery curriculum:

  • Fluency
  • Reasoning  
  • Problem Solving

 In order to meet raised national expectations within the National Curriculum we ensure that all of our children develop a deep and sustainable understanding of mathematical concepts through a maths curriculum which promotes a rich understanding of mathematical concepts taught in small steps in a systematic way.

We strive to offer a Maths curriculum which is consistent, sustainable and progressive through continuously looking at ways in which we can enhance the teaching and learning of mathematics within our school. All teachers are passionate about the teaching of mathematics, and strive to ensure context of mathematics is firmly embedded in the immersive learning experiences for all children.

In 2019-2020, we are fortunate to be working closely with the Cornwall Maths Hub to develop our teaching for mastery even further. We will also be targeting our middle attaining mathematicians in KS2.
