Mathematics at Compton

At Compton we believe that every child can do maths! 

We recognise that the ability to reason mathematically is the single most important factor in a pupil’s success in mathematics.  It is therefore crucial that opportunities to develop mathematical reasoning skills are integrated fully into our mathematics lessons. Such skills support deep knowledge of mathematical concepts enabling pupils to make connections, improve fluency, solve problems and ultimately become confident, life-long mathematicians.

Intent

All our children will:

  • Have the opportunity to reason mathematically, as this is the single most important factor in a pupil’s success in mathematics
  • Develop skills to support deep knowledge of mathematical concepts
  • Make connections, improve fluency, solve problems and ultimately become confident, life-long mathematicians.
  • Demonstrate their understanding using a range of learning styles (CPA) and mathematical vocabulary

Implementation

We strive to achieve the following within our daily maths teaching:

  • Daily mathematics lessons are well planned, using NCETM, Whiterose and Nrich materials
  • Mathematical reasoning skills and open-ended problems are integrated into our mathematics lessons.
  • Sentence stems are used to develop correct use of mathematical vocabulary
  • All pupils learn mathematical concepts using concrete apparatus, pictorial representations and abstract, formal methods
  • Pupils mark their own work and each other’s work within the lesson and move themselves on to greater challenges – supported by the teacher

This year, we are ensuring our pupils catch up on any missed mathematical understanding as a result of the past two years interrupted schooling.  We are doing this by integrating the NCETM curriculum prioritisation approach into challenging topics where teacher assessment shows children are struggling.  This programme provides coherent sequencing for the primary maths curriculum. It draws together the DfE guidance on curriculum prioritisation, with the high quality professional development and classroom resources provided by the NCETM Primary Mastery PD materials.

Impact

  • Teachers feel confident and supported in presenting well planned lessons that ensure development and progression of knowledge and skills.
  • Pupils have a positive, can do attitude to mathematics, able to reason  and solve problems
  • Children use the CPA approach to support their learning.
  • Concepts are embedded within their long term memory
