Maths at Coleshill Heath School
At Coleshill Heath Primary School, our maths curriculum is designed to provide children with the opportunity to expand upon and develop their mental maths skills, and prepare them for the wide variety of problem-solving opportunities that they will encounter in their lives.
Our Whole-School Maths Vision is:
As a school, we follow the blocking sequence from the White Rose Hub, to build children's depth of understanding when teaching each mathematical skill. At the beginning of a Maths lesson, our children are exposed to a mental oral starter, which consolidates previously taught learning. This is to ensure prior knowledge is consistently drawn upon. Our curriculum supports children with ‘bridging the gap’ between abstract mathematical concepts and concrete representations that they can manipulate and draw up. In addition to this, teachers use the Maths No Problem Text Books and the White Rose Maths Hub Mastery documents to ensure that we have both breadth and depth across our maths curriculum.
Through our maths vision, we are passionate and fully committed to developing a balance between the children’s procedural fluency and a conceptual understanding.
