Subject Statement of Intent – Maths
At Holy Rosary, we believe the Mathematics curriculum should be accessible to all and will maximise the development of every child’s ability and academic achievement. We aim to foster a ‘can do’ attitude, where children are encouraged to see mistakes as a positive part of the learning journey. They should also apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects.
As part of our Maths curriculum, we aim to develop:
We deliver daily lessons that build on children’s knowledge and skills - allowing them to know more and remember more. We do this by following a concrete, pictorial, abstract approach.
We follow the small steps within the White Rose scheme of learning for our daily Maths lessons. As well as this, children are taught an arithmetic lesson weekly. Children are given five retrieval questions every day to help them increase the knowledge stored in their long term memories.
We believe that by the time children leave Year 6, all children should have acquired the Mathematical knowledge that they need to be successful in the next stage of their educational lives.
