White Rose Maths  (WRM)

Although we hope one day to return to using Maths No Problem as our Maths scheme of work, 

whilst COVID is still with us, we have moved to using White Rose maths instead. 

White Rose follows many of the same core principles, models and images as Maths No Problem, but is much easier for pupils to follow at home, as there are daily teaching videos. This makes 'blended learning' much easier and allows pupils to easily transition between learning at home and learning at school. 

The schemes of work use a concrete-pictorial-abstract approach to support children to understand the maths they are learning and to be able to use it elsewhere.  The “small step” approach means nothing is left to chance – all curriculum objectives are broken down into accessible parts that build on each other so the learning journey is complete. Example questions are provided together with notes and guidance for teaching each step; teachers and children are both supported.

 The schemes of work  also support the development of reasoning and problem solving as well as fluency (with example questions again provided for each small step) so that all the aims of the National Curriculum are met.

We are still using Times Tables Rockstars and Maths Shed for homework. We recommend Sumdog, but this is now too expensive for us to subscribe to as a school.
