We deliver a skills based maths curriculum and where possible pupils’ work is connected to the theme they are studying in each year group. This is planned and taught with regard to the National Curriculum. We use the same principles of assess, plan, do and review to match learning opportunities to where gaps in understanding are to ensure we are targeting and designing our learning opportunities in personalised and differentiated way.
We usually assess at the beginning of a new unit or skill and then design learning from there. Children will then sit the same assessment after the unit of learning so they can measure their own progress and take ownership of it. We apply skills in to practical situations and have a heavy focus on applying skills in to problem solving.
