The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and nonroutine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
TEACHING OF MATHS AT WLS
The children are taught maths through White Rose Maths. This starts in Reception Class and continues through until the end of Year 4 when they move on to middle school. Children are also introduced to Times tables Rocks stars as they move through Key Stage 1 to help develop fluency of times tables recall ready for the Times Tables screening near the end of Year 4.
