Teaching Maths

Maths lessons

We follow the Primary Advantage Maths programme.

We focus on developing a strong grasp of number and ability to reason and problem-solve, using the following stages of understanding:

  1. Concrete – using actual objects to support understanding
  2. Pictorial – using pictures and images to develop understanding
  3. Abstract – applying understanding to different problems and situations
  • As part of the pictorial stage, the children learn how to use the bar model to help them solve problems
  • We have an investigative approach to maths lessons where possible, allowing children to apply skills and knowledge
  • Children choose from a range of tasks in lessons, enabling them to pick the correct level of challenge for themselves
