Here at St Johns we follow a mastery approach to maths. This enables the children to become confident when using their maths skills. We do this through encouraging them to use both practical resources and pictures. Children are encouraged to make connections between different areas of mathematics so they are able to make independent decisions. When the children are confident, they engage in challenges that encourage them to reason and explain their mathematical thinking.
Because of recent events, and children missing some of their education last term, White Rose have updated their small steps to incorporate missed learning and close gaps in their maths education. Below are the updated Autumn Term overviews for each year group.
