Early Years Maths

Reception use a ‘planning in the moment’ approach to planning teaching, learning and provision. Resources are provided for children to guide their own learning, with the scaffold of adults to question and link children’s learning moments to the EYFS.

Children have a guided maths session every day as a whole class which is taught through the White Rose Schemes of Learning.


Key Stage 1 Maths

The White Rose maths curriculum is a cumulative curriculum, so that once a topic is covered it is met many times again in other contexts. For example, place value is always covered in Autumn 1 but revisited within addition and subtraction, multiplication and division etc. Flashback 4/Four-a-Day is also used daily to revisit topics and weekly problem solving investigations (e.g. using NRICH) to ensure children are using and applying their mathematical knowledge in a variety of contexts.
