At Yohden Primary School, our mathematics curriculum is rigorously planned and delivered to allow all children to become fluent, to reason mathematically, to problem solve and to perform mental calculations quickly and accurately. Our curriculum is progressive, building on and recapping prior learning at every opportunity. Each lesson is tailored to the needs and abilities of all pupils, offering appropriate challenge.
We believe children learn mathematics first through experiential learning followed by concrete, pictorial and abstract learning. At Yohden Primary School, mathematics in sequenced in a way that follows this approach, revisits prior learning and uses appropriate resources to scaffold learning where necessary.
Our mathematics curriculum ensures children at Yohden Primary School are given optimal opportunities to develop life-long mathematical skills that are essential to their subsequent education and employment.
