The document below shows you an overview of the objectives that are taught in each year group in maths.
The Teaching of Maths
At Rosedale, Pupils are provided with a variety of opportunities to develop and extend their mathematical skills in and across each phase of education.
Generally, lessons start with a mental/oral starter, a main teaching activity, followed by an independent activity, ending with a plenary session. Throughout lessons, children get the chance for:
Whole class teaching use of equipment, resources and ICT
Pupils engage in:
The development of mental strategies
Consolidation of basic skills and number facts
Concrete - Pictorial - Absract
Last year, we have put a lot of effort, money and time into introducing staff and children to the idea of concrete - pictorial - abstract teaching in maths. The basic idea is that no matter the topic, all children should be introduced to it by through concrete objects. Once they have a good understanding, they will then move on to pictorial and finally abstract methods.
This year, children will be using this strategy more to build on their understanding.
See the link below for a more detailed explanation.
Arithmetic is a major focus in the current curriculum. As a result, we have produced a list of non-negotiables for the teaching of arithmetic across school. At Rosedale, we also understand the importance of establishing a secure foundation in mental calculation and the recall of key number facts before written methods are introduced. These are constantly reinforced throughout lessons.
Formal methods of calculation are taught in each group. Please check back for videos below showing each year group expectations.
