At The Mosley Academy we believe that Maths equips pupils with the uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world. These tools include number fluency (including times tables), logical reasoning, problem-solving skills and the ability to think in abstract ways.
Mathematics is important in everyday life. It is integral to all aspects of life and with this in mind we endeavour to ensure that children develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics.
The National Curriculum for mathematics describes in detail what pupils must learn in each year group. It is vital that a positive attitude towards mathematics is encouraged amongst all of our pupils in order to foster confidence and achievement in a skill that is essential in our society.
At The Mosley Academy we use the National Curriculum 2014 for Mathematics as the basis of our mathematics programme, this can be accessed here: Mathematics programmes of study: key stages 1 and 2 (publishing.service.gov.uk)
We use White Rose Maths as a long term spine for our Maths lesson planning. Overviews of this can be found in the links below.
The Times Table Rockstars platform is also used to raise the profile of times tables and enhance learning both in school and at home. This can be accessed here: Times Tables Rock Stars: Play (ttrockstars.com)
We are committed to ensuring that all pupils achieve mastery in the key concepts of mathematics, appropriate for their age group, in order that they make genuine progress and avoid gaps in their understanding that provide barriers to learning as they move through education.
I really enjoy maths at school! I like using the resources in my classroom and the working walls to help me with my learning!
Our teachers always tell us what we're learning, and they expect us to work hard! We have next steps, so we know what we need to improve on.
I feel like I am getting better and better in maths and, when I don't understand something, I feel confident to ask for help.
