Maths Rationale:


Why have we chosen Maths No Problem to support the teaching of Maths?


At Camp Hill we realise that the high-quality teaching of mathematics provides children with essential life skills. We therefore have a clear and consistent approach using the Maths No Problem Scheme of work in Years 1-5 and White Rose for Reception. In Year 6 we currently use Grammarsaurus to ensure coverage before SATS. Both use a mastery approach to learning and this is essential for children to broaden and deepen their understanding of the subject in small manageable steps. 


By following a spiral curriculum, our pupils are able to revisit a topic, theme or subject several times throughout their school career. The complexity of the topic or theme increases with each revisit but new learning has a relationship with old learning and is put in context. We believe the benefits of teaching in this way are that the information is reinforced and solidified each time the pupil revisits the subject matter as it allows a logical progression from simplistic ideas to complicated ideas.


Furthermore, pupils are encouraged to apply the early knowledge to later objectives. Every lesson begins with a rich problem that is unpicked by the pupils. They identify what skills they will need to develop to be able to solve the problem and this is discussed alongside their teachers. Children are encouraged to answer and discuss these problems in a variety of ways using a concrete-pictorial-abstract approach (CPA).
