Maths At The Grove Infant and Nursery
Our school follow a 'Power Maths' approach. This is one of the Government recognised maths mastery strategies to deliver maths in schools. Mastery focuses on unpicking key mathematical concepts such as place value and calculations and ensuring that pupils have the necessary understanding behind these. Throughout their maths learning, pupils will experience using a range of physical resources (manipulatives) such as the tens frame, numicon and beads string to support their visual and hands on understanding. We see this as key to their development.
There is also an emphasis on pupil's reasoning and problem solving. The pupils are encouraged to explain, prove/disprove and persuade others of their answers.
In response to COVID 19, we have identified potential key learning that will need to be revisited and have updated our learning sequences to reflect this. Thereby ensuring their are no gaps in the pupil's progression of learning.
Please find below resources that show our curriculum coverage and will support you with key ideas and vocabulary.
