Maths at Christ Church is awesomeinformativecool

At Christ Church Junior School we are all mathmagicians and our maths wizard is Mrs Craven.

What does maths look like at Christ Church Junior School?

The children have a daily maths lesson, usually the first lesson in the morning, with a duration of 75 minutes.  We actively support the children in developing a growth mind set (The belief that we can improve our abilities through hard work and dedication) in order that they develop as creative, resilient mathematicians. In maths, we encourage the children to share and value the mistakes they make as part of their learning.  They build resilience and develop tenacity in problem solving. 

As maths is such a huge part of the world around us, there are many cross-curricular links and our maths learning is developed through a vast range of other subjects such as Geography, History, Science, Computing and Art.

At CCJS, the White Rose Maths framework is followed by all teachers to support with the planning and delivery of quality maths lessons.

 

The aim of this approach is to:

  • Support children’s ability to make links and connections between mathematical concepts,
  • Develop children’s reasoning and problem solving skills
  • Increase children’s fluency of number fact recall.

They will learn through the use of CONCRETE, PICTORIAL and ABSTRACT methods which support children to “SEE THE MATHS” and apply learning to new concepts.

 

    Concrete – Children use practical apparatus such as base 10, place value counters, counters, and plastic coins to complete calculations. The main focus is to investigate new concepts and ideas, develop an understanding of the place value of numbers and recognise links to prior learning.

 

    Pictorial – Children draw images and diagrams to encourage them to begin developing mental pictures of calculations and visualise the calculation. Children make links between concrete and abstract representations.

 

    Abstract – Children represent prior learning using mathematical symbols. They consolidate the understanding formed through concrete and pictorial investigation and use digits and symbols to represent calculations.
