Mathematics

 

At Bugle School, we believe that mathematics should be fun and rewarding for all children. As such we endeavour to make our work in mathematics engaging for all learners.

 

Our curriculum is mapped by the White Rose Maths Hub scheme of work. We focus on a progression from concrete resources, to pictorial representations and finally into the numerical abstract to aid our children’s conceptual understanding. As a result, we are seeing a growth in confidence in all our learners, especially in areas of problem solving and reasoning. There is an increased focus on pupils fluency and recall of key number facts. As a school we use the 99 club. The children are taught daily times tables and key number facts, these are supported at home by parents and assessed weekly. TT Rockstars is used in Yrs 3-6 which gives children a chance to compete against each other in school, locally and nationally. We want all children to become fluent in these key skills to help reduce the working memory to focus on more challenging concepts.

 

We are part of the Mastery Readiness program through the Cornwall and West Devon Maths hub and have access to a Mastery Specialist and SLE as part of the Aspire Trust.
