At Aylesham Primary school we believe that all children can achieve and we empower our children with a ‘can do’ attitude, embracing our school value of resilience. We make lessons practical and aim for all pupils to enjoy and achieve in mathematics and become confident mathematicians. Consistency is key and all teachers build on children’s understanding of mathematics through a process of enquiry, reasoning and problem solving, inspiring their creativity and developing their mathematical thinking. We also make use of a range of learning strategies, encouraging teamwork and boosting their independence. Number sense is vital and this is built on from the very beginning ensuring that all children can fly high in their learning.
We follow the White Rose Maths Hub schemes of learning and the use of small steps support a mastery approach to teaching and learning. These small steps have been designed to support the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum.
