Maths across the whole school

Here at Keyworth Primary School we ensure the National Curriculum is covered in full by teaching maths through a mastery approach. 

We use 'White Rose' resource to support the teaching of maths. It is a scheme of work written to meet the requirements of the 2014 English National Curriculum. Teachers use White Rose as the main spine of their maths teaching, augmenting and modifying it with additional resources and strategies in line with children's needs and stage of development.

What Is Mastery Maths?

Teaching maths for mastery is a transformational approach to maths teaching which stems from high performing Asian nations such as Singapore. When taught to master maths, children develop their mathematical fluency without resorting to rote learning and are able to solve non-routine maths problems without having to memorise procedures.

The attachments at the bottom of this post will give you an overview of what is taught in each year group from EYFS all the way up to Year 6.
