At Yohden Primary School, our staff expect our pupils to show independence and to be resilient when working with mathematical problems. We strive for confident mathematicians that can choose appropriate methods of mathematics which can be applied to a range of real-world problems and to be financially literate.
At Yohden Primary School, our mathematics curriculum is 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 whilst offering adequate challenge to ensure at least good progress is made by all.
Our mathematics curriculum ensures that pupils at Yohden Primary School are given opportunities to develop life-long mathematical skills.
We believe that children learn mathematics first through experiential learning followed by concrete, pictorial and abstract learning. At Yohden Primary School, mathematics is sequenced in a way that follows this approach, revisits prior learning, and uses appropriate resources to scaffold learning where necessary.
We have adopted a mastery approach to the teaching of Mathematics, based on the belief that all children can achieve, given good teaching, time, resources, and the opportunity to practise mathematical skills.
