Our Learning as Mathematicians

At Greatstone Primary School we embrace the Mastery approach to teaching mathematics. Our teachers ensure that mathematical skills are taught daily following the Big Maths programme, White Rose and Hamilton Trust resources. They also use cross curricular opportunities to develop children’s mathematical fluency. Our children understand the importance of mathematics, are encouraged to be confident in numeracy and to apply the skills that they learn to simple problem solving. The activities cover a wide range of mathematical knowledge, many with an emphasis on practical work. We build on skills and understanding in a step by step and progressive way and continue to develop place value, the four number operations and the understanding of fractional parts.
