Maths at Barnby Road
At Barnby Road, we will ensure that our mathematics provision enables children:
Children are taught the National Curriculum using the ‘mastery’ approach where there are high expectations of all children. Classes are taught as a whole, spending longer on a concept so that learning can go deeper and be sustained. Carefully crafted lessons consider misconceptions children may have as well as contexts for their learning. The whole class is taught the same small step, the next step is for everyone. Children work in mixed ability pairs with mathematical talk and the ability to reason at the heart of the lesson. Everyone has access to a range of resources that support conceptual understanding in order to move from concrete to pictorial and through to abstract.
Mathematics at Barnby Road will ensure that pupils make progress through each year group, acquiring and applying key knowledge, so that they at least meet the agreed age expectations in a subject and develop a life-long passion about mathematics.
