Maths Recovery Curriculum

At Chalkhill Primary School our aim is to deepen children's understanding of maths and not simply accelerate learning; as a result our children develop fluency before moving onto reasoning and problem-solving. Our teaching is richly supported by the use of pictorial and concrete resources, before moving to the abstract. Teachers plan according to the needs of each class to deliver our Maths curriculum using resources from NCETM, White Rose Maths, Target Maths, Classroom Secrets, Maths No Problem, Twinkl and NRich. Additional information on the teaching of maths for parents can be accessed here.  If you would like to get an overview of the National Curriculum for maths, you can find more information here.

Throughout each year, children will cover and build on their understanding in:

 Knowing and using numbers Using fractions Using measures Addition and subtraction Understanding the properties of shape Using statistics Multiplication and division Describing position, direction and movement Using algebra

Whilst our pupils learn the following essential characteristics of mathematics:

• An understanding of the important concepts and an ability to make connections within mathematics;
• A broad range of skills in using and applying mathematics;
• Fluent knowledge and recall of number facts and the number system;
• The ability to show initiative in solving problems in a wide range of contexts, including the new or unusual;
• The ability to think independently and to persevere when faced with challenges;
• To embrace the value of learning from mistakes and false starts;
• The ability to reason, generalise and make sense of solutions;
• Fluency in performing written and mental calculations and mathematical techniques;
• A wide range of mathematical vocabulary;
• A commitment to and enthusiasm in the subject.
