We aim to ensure that all pupils:
- become fluent mathematicians
- can reason mathematically
- can solve problems
At St Alfege’s we use the White Rose schemes of learning to deliver the maths curriculum.
Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract
The children follow the ‘Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract’ approach to build competency when introduced to a new concept.
Children have the opportunity to use concrete objects and manipulatives (e.g. Numicon, Base 10, Place Value Counters, Bead Strings) to help them understand what they are doing.
Children use pictorial/visual representations of the concrete objects
Children use symbols
For Example: 6 + 5
6 + 5 = 6 + 4 + 1 = 10 + 1 = 11
Children are also given the opportunity to reason and solve problems within their lessons.
We use two platforms to support the children’s maths learning.
