‘high-quality mathematics provides a foundation for understanding the world’
(Primary National Curriculum, 2014)

Rose Hill Primary aims to enable its learners to be confident mathematicians. We want our young mathematicians to be able to solve problems, reason about mathematical concepts and apply their mathematical skills fluently in a variety of contexts.

In order to do this we teach the National Curriculum Programme of study which covers

  • Knowing and using number
  • Adding and Subtracting
  • Multiplying and Dividing
  • Using fractions
  • Using measures
  • Using geometry
  • Using statistics

A Mastery Approach to Maths

Since 2015 Rose Hill has been part of the North West Maths Hub and has developed a Mastery Approach to Maths. Teaching for mastery in Maths is essentially the expectation that all pupils will gain a deep understanding of the maths they are learning.

A mastery approach to the curriculum means pupils spend far longer on fewer key mathematical concepts whilst working at greater depth. Long term gaps in learning are prevented through speedy teacher intervention and those children who grasp the concepts more quickly are given opportunities to deepen their knowledge and improve their reasoning skills rather than accelerating on to new curriculum content.

Problem solving is central and opportunities are given for pupils to calculate with confidence, ensuring an understanding of why it works so that pupils understand what they are doing rather than just learning to repeat routines without grasping what is happening. To find out more about each phase of school click the pictures below.
