Whole School Maths
Math curriculum at Park Lane
Across all year groups, we promote a ‘Mastery approach’ towards teaching in learning. This works to ensure that all pupils have mastered key concepts, before moving onto the next phase of learning. Maths mastery allows children to acquire a deep and secured long-term understanding of each area taught.
In Foundation Stage the Maths curriculum is carefully designed to build up on the strengths and needs of all children across the year group. Our Maths curriculum consists of everything we want the children to experience, learn and do.
As a curriculum aid, we use the non-statutory document, Development matters. This document helps structure a development pathway for the children to reach their expected end of year target (Early Learning Goal).
Our 2022 Maths curriculum maps for each term can be found on tab ‘EYFS Maths’.
Y1 – Y6
Both KS1 & KS2 use White Rose Maths to sequence their planning and learning. White Rose Maths is an organisation that provides schemes of learning for Maths. The schemes of learning map out a yearly overview that breaks down learning into different weeks of the year, supporting children in mastering objectives from the National Curriculum.
The schemes of learning for each year group can be found on ‘WRM’ tabs.
