Mathematics is an essential part of everyday life. Here at East Ardsley Primary Academy we aim for children to develop a positive attitude to mathematics. It is an interesting and enjoyable subject in its own right and across the curriculum.
Mathematics is fundamentally a practical subject and therefore we develop the children's knowledge, understanding and enjoyment of mathematics through practical activity, exploration and discussion.
To support the teaching of the wider mathematics curriculum we use White Rose Hub planning and resources. This ensures we are able to keep on track and to teach mathematical concepts systematically. It also supports staff in developing the children's reasoning and problem solving skills.
Throughout the school, we teach using the 'Power Maths' scheme which provides a structured progression in teaching maths skills. it focuses on developing an understanding of mathematical skills through a mastery approach to lessons.
