To enable children to use their knowledge and understanding of mathematics confidently, now and in every aspect of their future lives.
At Campsbourne School we are teaching maths through Maths Mastery which is closely linked to the highly successful Singaporean method. At present children in Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5 are taught using Maths Mastery which will roll out each year into the next year group.
The Mathematics Mastery curriculum has been developed to ensure every child can achieve excellence in mathematics. It provides pupils with a deep understanding of the subject through a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach. This ensures pupils fully understand what they are learning.
Key features of our Maths Mastery curriculum:
High expectations for every child
Fewer topics, greater depth
Number sense and place value come first
Research -based curriculum
Objects and pictures always before numbers
Problem solving is central
Calculate with confidence– understand why it works
Mathematics Mastery places emphasis on the cumulative mastery of essential knowledge and skills in mathematics. It embeds a deeper understanding of maths by utilising a concrete, pictorial, abstract approach so that pupils understand what they are doing rather than just learning to repeat routines without grasping what is happening.
