White Rose Maths
The White Rose Maths Hub schemes for each year group are designed to support a mastery approach to maths teaching and learning. They have been designed to support the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum.
The schemes of learning:
- have number at their heart. A large proportion of time is spent reinforcing number to build competency.
- ensure teachers stay in the required key stage and support the ideal amount of depth before breadth.
- ensure that pupils have the opportunity to stay together as they work through the schemes as a group.
- provide plenty of opportunities to build reasoning and problem solving elements into the curriculum.
Concrete - Pictorial - Abstract
We believe that all children, when introduced to a new concept, should have the opportunity to build competency by taking this approach.
Concrete - children should have the opportunity to use concrete objects and manipulatives to help them understand what they are doing.
Pictorial - alongside this children should use pictorial representations. These representations can then be used to help reason and solve problems.
Abstract - both concrete and pictorial representations should support children's understanding of abstract methods.
