Maths Curriculum Intent
At Ardley Hill Academy, we have aspirational expectations for every pupil in that they will be
challenged in all areas of maths. Children will develop the skills and knowledge to understand
mathematics confidently, now and in every aspect of their future lives. Children will be taught to
communicate using the correct mathematical language to support them with reasoning and follow a line of enquiry, make connections and show understanding in a variety of ways.
We follow White Rose Maths as it follows the National Curriculum and it shows a clear progression through the curriculum through using small steps progression, these help children become fluent in the fundamentals of maths. This is done through varied and frequent practice, offering children problems which are routine and non-routine with increasing sophistication to help them deepen their knowledge to become mathematicians. This all helps children to develop conceptual understanding.
Mastery Number, Times Table Rock Stars and White Rose 1 Minute Maths support children to recall their knowledge rapidly and accurately. Following White Rose supports progress, children are knowing and remembering more as White Rose Maths offers a well sequenced and well-constructed curriculum. Through the use of the Ardley Maths Learning Journey and the maths progression through the 'ready to progress’ National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM), staff will be aware of what skills and knowledge they are building on from the previous year and how the knowledge and skills they teach the children, will help them achieve in the next year.
