Believe to Achieve


The maths curriculum at William Booth closely follows the mastery approach in order to ensure all children are fluent in the fundamentals of maths as well as being able to confidently reason and solve a range of challenging problems. We strongly believe that all children can achieve in maths and our teaching and learning reflects this. Children in Reception follow 'Mastering Number' - spending time to firm foundations in the development of good number sense, building fluency in calculation and a confidence and flexibility with number. Years 1 to 6 follow the Maths No Problem scheme which ensures that children are exposed to a range of deeper thinking tasks every lesson as well as being given the opportunity to develop their mental skills as appropriate. In every year group, learning is built upon using a range of contexts and representations and time is given to explore concepts in detail to aid children’s understanding. Therefore, learning is sustainable over time, within and across year groups.
