Maths

At Rusthall St. Paul’s we want to foster a love for mathematics and to experience success in  the subject. 

We want children to use and apply their mathematical skills and knowledge confidently to their everyday lives. We want children to make connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. 

Rusthall St. Paul’s follows a Mastery Approach using the White Rose Framework. 

The White Rose Framework supports a mastery approach to teaching and learning and supports the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum.

Our teachers plan sequences of learning based on the White Rose Framework which give the opportunity for pupils to stay together and work through new content as a whole group. The curriculum is broken down into small, manageable steps in order to help pupils understand concepts better. Working from these plans ensure that our lessons:

  • have number at their heart. A large proportion of time is spent reinforcing number to build competency.
  • support the ideal of depth before breadth
  • keep pupils working together as a whole group
  • provide plenty of opportunities for reasoning and problem solving elements
  • provide challenging opportunities

When taught to master maths, children develop their mathematical fluency without resorting to rote learning and are able to solve non-routine maths problems without having to memorise procedures.

Communication is key as they work alongside peers to reason, explain and justify their thinking using mathematical vocabulary.  Misconceptions are addressed as they arise and teachers actively engage children in proving their ideas. Manipulatives are used as visual aids.  As they make progress in the lesson/sequence of lessons they move towards using pictorial and abstract representations for mathematical concepts.
