Our Maths Leader is: Mrs J Albin
At St Mary of Charity Primary School, our Maths Curriculum provides a personalised journey of learning for each individual child. (Teach, Practice, Apply and Embed)
Within this, children are exposed to fluency, problem solving and reasoning. We recognise that at SMC the most productive lessons are ones where children have experienced Maths through manipulatives. The use of manipulatives improves visualisation and Speech and Language which in turn enables children to verbalise and in time to write their reasoning. Children will then apply this knowledge across other areas of the curriculum.
Robust assessment in each unit enables us to identify children’s starting points, tailor adult support (teacher and TA) and challenge children accordingly.
