Learners for Life

Maths

Maths is an important skill which is used in everyday life. At Coppice Valley we want our children to master a sense of number then build on this to develop the skills of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division.

The Maths curriculum is built on progression within each year. Each year group has a logical sequence of objectives that build on prior learning and ultimately lead to a mastery of maths.

 

At Coppice Valley we have developed a mastery approach to the teaching of maths to ensure fluency, reasoning and problem solving.

We aim to do this by:

  • Ensuring our children have access to a high quality maths curriculum that is both challenging and enjoyable.
  • Ensuring children are confident mathematicians who are not afraid to take risks.
  • Allowing opportunities to revisit and deepen pupils understanding around concepts and aspects of mathematics allowing them to know more and remember more.
  • Employing a variety of mastery strategies to ensure fluency and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
