Implementation of our Maths Curriculum


  • A carefully sequenced maths curriculum allows children to build on prior mathematical knowledge and make connections to their learning.
  • We follow Liverpool Maths Plans to plan and teach mathematics and sequence these to meet the needs of the pupils we teach. We also use White Rose Maths Hub, NCETM, Nrich, I see reasoning and I see problem solving to assist in our delivery of the maths curriculum.
  • Our teaching sequence follows a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach to learning.
  • Representations and structures allow pupils to make connections between their learning.
  • Teachers use variation to offer concepts in more than one way and to sequence learning, drawing attention to mathematical relationships.
  • High quality individual and whole class feedback is used to address misconceptions before moving onto new learning.
  • Children are given opportunities to reflect on their work and review their own progress.
  • Children develop their learning by working in pairs, groups and independently.
  • Retention activities at the beginning of every lesson help children to consolidate prior learning and consolidate their fluency.
  • Teachers’ model/demonstrate new concepts through images/manipulatives/use of ICT.
  • Children have access to practical equipment every lesson to develop and support their concrete conceptual understanding.
  • High-level vocabulary is modelled to pupils, displayed in classrooms and used regularly as a teaching point. Children are given opportunities to use vocabulary in a range of contexts.
  • Teachers encourage a growth mind set culture where children learn from their mistakes.
  • Open and probing questioning is used to deepen children's mathematical thinking.
  • Children are given opportunities to apply skills in a variety of real life contexts to deepen their problem solving and reasoning skills.
  • Maths Journals are used to deepen understanding of concepts and key vocabulary.
  • TTRockstars is used and celebrated to develop confidence with times tables.
  • Basic maths facts are carefully sequenced and tracked across year groups.
