Our Lady and St. Patrick's Catholic Primary School


We use a variety of resources and methods to teach maths, because we don't all learn in the same way. Teachers carefully plan which methods, resources and apparatus are best-suited to teach, model or reinforce the mathematical learning in every lesson. We use pictures, images and concrete resources to reinforce children's mathematical understanding, right through school.


'White Rose Maths' forms the core of all our planning in maths, from Reception up to Year 6. This is a mastery approach to maths, which encourages in-depth coverage of concepts over the year and over the school life of your child. White Rose Maths enables the children to move from concrete to pictorial to abstract understanding of mathematical ideas and concepts. It also develops deep-learning in maths, so that children can apply the skills they have learned in a range of 'real-life' and problem-solving contexts, as well as in other subjects across the curriculum.


If you would like any other information, please speak to the class teacher or the subject leader for maths - Mrs Robb.
