Maths at Ankermoor Primary Academy:
As a school we will be following the mastery approach of teaching Mathematics. The key principles are:
- All pupils are encouraged by the belief that by working hard at maths they can succeed.
- A detailed curriculum is mapped out across all phases and key knowledge and skills are set out, which need to be mastered before moving on to the next stage.
- Visual representations and concrete equipment are used to help children to understand the concepts and procedures: Why we do what we do.
- There is a focus on basic skills which are specifically taught to ensure that pupils are fluent.
