Mathematics Curriculum Statement
At West Vale Academy we follow the White Rose Maths scheme of work which has been designed in accordance with ‘The Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum’ and ‘The National Curriculum’.
We strive for all our children to become successful problem solvers and resilient mathematicians. We want the children to have a strong and secure mathematical knowledge that will give them the correct foundations for later life. It is our aim for all of our pupils to have a love of maths.
We are keen to instill a strong and secure mathematical knowledge in all our children that will give them the correct foundations for later life. To do this we use the ‘Concrete Pictorial Abstract (CPA)’ approach to teach mathematical concepts. This enables children to solve problems in a variety of ways. By following the stages of CPA, the children develop a deep understanding that enables them to reason and explain.
We also use Number Sense in R-Y3 to develop confidence and flexibility with number and fluency in addition and subtraction facts and we use Times Table Rockstars from Y3-Y6 to develop the children’s rapid recall of their multiplication tables.
