What does Maths look like at Neville’s Cross?
At Neville’s Cross, we provide a curriculum which caters for the needs of all individuals. A typical maths lesson will provide the opportunity for all children, regardless of their ability or age, to work through Fluency, Reasoning and Problem Solving activities. We incorporate sustained levels of challenge through varied and high quality activities with a focus on fluency, reasoning and problem solving. Once children are fluent in a particular area, they are quickly moved onto more challenging reasoning and problem solving activities. Children are required to explore maths in depth, using mathematical vocabulary to reason and explain their workings. A wide range of mathematical resources are used and children are taught to show their workings in a concrete fashion, before establishing ways of pictorially and formally representing their understanding. They are taught to explain their choice of methods and develop their mathematical reasoning skills. We encourage resilience and acceptance that struggle is often a necessary step in learning. We provide excellent opportunity for mathematics to be applied across all areas of the curriculum and in ‘real life’ contexts. Our curriculum is organised and carefully planned so that each term children have opportunities to revisit all areas of the maths.
