Mathematics
Our mathematics curriculum is founded on the principles of a Mastery curriculum that ensure children grasp the fundamentals of mathematics with a deep conceptual understanding.
Our maths curriculum stems from the Inspire Maths planning resource and is enhanced by enrichment activities taken from sources such as NCETM, NRICH and White Rose Maths. Inspire Maths was chosen as our scheme of work as it met the needs of the children at Meadowdale. It is based on bestpractice principles and methods of teaching and learning mathematics, including the concretepictorialabstract and scaffolding approaches, and a systematic teaching pathway.
The use of Inspire Maths textbooks allows us to adopt the concretepictorialabstract approach so that children are able to achieve a secure number sense. It also develops children’s procedural and conceptual understanding through smallsteps and a variety of representations that would lead them towards mastery. Through the use of supplementary resources we provide a suitable challenge for the children at Meadowdale Primary School. These additional enrichment activities complement our mathematics scheme to provide further opportunities for problem solving.
We follow the Statutory framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage and programme of study from the National curriculum for England.
