Maths at Ravenshead
We follow the WhiteRose mastery-based scheme of learning to ensure coverage in Maths. We use a mastery-based scheme of learning because mastering Maths means that the children acquire a solid understanding of concepts which allows them to move on to more advanced material.
We underpin the WhiteRose materials with Primarystars Maths in Key Stage 1. In Key Stage 2 we supplement with Classroom Secrets and Target Your Maths. EYFS uses the Numicon Firm Foundations scheme to make sure that children have a secure knowledge and understanding of subitising before reaching Year 1.
We want all of our children to love Maths whist at Ravenshead and develop into secure mathematicians. Once children learn the value of maths in real life, they start to see how useful and necessary it is and see that it isn’t a subject in isolation. We want Maths to be fun for the children which is why, as a school, we are involved in maths outside our lessons too. We take part in Number Day in February, Money Week in June and Maths Week in November.
