Our Maths curriculum is bespoke to our school. It is based on the Power Maths scheme and uses the excellent resources it provides but has been revised to include:
- The addition of extra resources to promote number fact retrieval and fluency in arithmetic.
- The adaptation of the scheme to focus on specific models and representations in a deliberate, cumulative way as they move through the year groups in our school context.
- The planned use of core representations across more areas of maths as they move through Foundation, Key Stage 1 and 2, preparing children well for the transition to Key Stage 3.
- The development of opportunities to create challenge for all pupils, including those who have SEND or are slower to grasp concepts, through the use of additional materials such as those available from NCETM.
Adaptations to ensure pupils meet the “ready to progress criteria” which identify the most important conceptual knowledge and understanding that pupils need as they progress from Year 1 to Year 6 and beyond.
