Maths

Rationale

At Greet, we are driven by a collective mission of ensuring that children understand that there are no limits to what they can achieve.  It is through this relentless ambition and high expectations that we seek to secure academic excellence for our children, to develop their social intelligence and to develop their understanding of how to live ethical lives.   We do this so that our children can go on to live their best lives, with respect for and understanding of others and the world around them.

 

Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject. (National Curriculum)

 

Our approach

At Greet we use the Power Maths scheme which is a mastery programme created in partnership with White Rose Maths which is followed by teachers at Greet for children in Reception to Year 6.  The scheme takes a mastery approach to mathematics, learning time is spent reinforcing core knowledge, and depth of knowledge is prioritised. Our aim is for our pupils to gain a deep understanding of Maths and be confident, resilient mathematicians with a passion for the subject.  As a school we introduce new concepts to pupils by first using concrete representations, then progressing to pictorial representations, and finally challenging pupils to use abstract methods.

 

  • Textbooks & Practice Books: Textbooks provide a coherent structure through the curriculum and support children on their journey towards deeper understanding. Practice Books enable intelligent practice for children to complete independently.

  • Teacher Guides: Support for day-to-day teaching, including how to provide extra stretch or support for children during each lesson.

  • Online Toolkit: Textbooks and interactive teaching tools, plus ‘strengthen’ and ‘deepen’ activities, an assessment markbook, teacher PD videos are provided for staff online.
