Marlborough Primary School

Mathematics

Similarly, maths is a key skill and therefore we focus on systematically developing children's mathematical knowledge, ideas and operations.  We use the overviews provided by the White Rose Maths Hub to support the teaching and learning of the National Curriculum objectives for Maths which help teachers plan stimulating and challenging lessons.

The overviews for each year group are broken down into fluency, reasoning and problem solving, which are the key aims of the curriculum, and provide examples of key questions and activities. These overviews lead to a mastery approach to teaching and learning.  

The Maths curriculum is planned to be challenging and meet the needs of all pupils and as a consequence pupils are supported to apply their mathematical skills to a variety of different problems.  Pupils are given opportunities to engage in ‘real life’ maths problems that provide a stimulating challenge for all abilities
