At Saffron Green we fully embrace the Maths Essential curriculum which develops fluency, reasoning and problem solving. We teach a clear sequenced curriculum which allows knowledge and skills to be gained at each stage. Through these carefully planned sequences, teachers are able to consistently assess and inform the children’s learning against age-related expectations.
Key facts are vital to all aspects of maths and we have a strong focus at Saffron Green on developing our knowledge of times tables. We address misconceptions and develop reasoning skills by asking the children to explain, justify and prove their answers. We use concrete resources and both pictorial and abstract representations to demonstrate their mathematical understanding.
