Maths at Somerset Bridge Primary School



Curriculum overview

In Maths, the aim of the National Curriculum clearly states that children should become fluent, be able to reason and solve problems.  We do this by ensuring the children have access to concrete resources so they can 'see' the Maths; they progress onto pictorial representations of their learning which leads to the children being able to use the concrete and pictorial representations to calculate mentally.


We are following a 'Mastery' approach to teaching Maths which means the children spend longer on a strand within Maths to ensure children's learning is embedded at a greater depth.  The White Rose materials we use have 'number' at their heart to reinforce children's competency.  They also provide plenty of opportunities to build reasoning and problem solving elements into the curriculum.
