Maths

Free math mathematics mathematical operations vector  At Cromer Road we provide children with a broad and balanced Maths curriculum which gives them        the opportunity to develop fluency and problem solving skills. Learning is progressive moving through    the concrete stage, using physical resources to support learning; to the pictorial stage, using drawn models and jottings and finally to the abstract stage, solving calculations and problem solving using prior knowledge. 

 

We follow the framework of the National Curriculum and use the White Rose scheme of work alongside the recommendations of the National Centre of Excellence in the Teaching of Mathmetics (NCETM) to deliver our maths lessons.

Children have the opportunity to        apply their number knowledge through reasoning based activities which show a deeper                                          understanding. 

 

Key mathematical vocabulary is introduced at the start of each unit and through the sequence of lessons children start to use the identified vocabulary to discuss their learning. Children are encouraged to use this vocabulary when answering reasoning and problem solving questions.

Teachers        and support staff will model step by step the processes children need to learn at the start of each            lesson. These models are then displayed on Working Walls in the classroom for children to access during their independent activities.
