Mathematics at Edgebury
At Edgebury, we follow the White Rose Maths Scheme of Work from Reception to Year 6.
For each year group, the scheme of learning includes an overview of the maths that your child will be learning at any point in the year. Year Group overviews can be found below.
Each year is split into three terms (autumn, spring and summer), and each term comprises individual blocks of learning about a particular topic. We place a high value on the secure understanding of number and spend lots of time building strong number skills in Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. These essential core skills lay a solid foundation for more complicated learning later on. Number skills are revisited and rehearsed during early morning work, fluency sessions within maths lessons and through the use of Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars. Weekly home challenges set using Mathletics help children to secure and consolidate skills and retain learning.
We want children to feel that they can succeed in Maths and to develop a love of learning through their experiences of mathematics at primary school. Our mathematics lessons build fluency, problem solving and reasoning through sequences of carefully planned and resourced lessons. We use a range of concrete (practical apparatus such as cubes, counters etc) pictorial (diagrams and representations) and abstract (written, problem solving, application tasks) activities and resources to support children's learning.
