How we teach Mathematics at Hanborough Manor CE School
Specific time is given to the teaching of maths (approximately 5 hours per week) and cross curricular links are made where appropriate (e.g. graphs in Science).
The school follows the White Rose Maths planning, making adaptations where needed. In FS and KS1, Numicon planning is used to support the White Rose units where appropriate.
Teachers will keep a ‘Mark Book’ to record times table test scores (where applicable).
To ensure a consistent approach to the development of calculation throughout the school, a Calculation Policy is followed. The policy includes models of written methods for all operations and guidance of how to teach these.
Visual representations and resources are used throughout the school to support and develop pupils understanding of mathematical concepts. Some example include: Numicon, number lines, hundred square, dienes blocks, place value cards, number cards and multiplication squares.
The analysis of data along with the ongoing assessment of pupil’s progress enables the SENCo to work alongside teachers to target the specific needs of children. The use of targeted interventions are put into place to support and further develop pupils understanding and knowledge.
