Below you will find the statement of intent and the subject overview.
Maths at Eastbrook
At Eastbrook Primary Academy, we aim to foster a love of mathematical learning. Maths can be an adventure regardless of the child’s prior experience or preconceptions; everyone can enjoy, value and master this subject.
Maths should be engaging and develop a sense of curiosity through problem-solving, reasoning and the use of systematic approaches. We aspire for all children to be given the foundations, mathematical skills, and understanding which can be built upon, embedded and transferred to create independent learners.
Children will leave Eastbrook with practical mathematical skills that will help them as they continue their journey through life.
Core Eastbrook Learning Value: Curiosity
Numbers and shapes reveal patterns, rules and surprises that every child can explore.
How We Teach Maths
At Eastbrook, we follow the White Rose scheme of work. This scheme is based on a mastery approach to learning which encourages children to develop a deep, long-term, secure understanding of the subject. The White Rose scheme covers the objectives set out by the National Curriculum and is designed to build upon small steps of learning. White Rose’s philosophy is to ensure that children become confident mathematicians who embrace challenges with resilience and perseverance.
Their motto is: Everyone can do maths: everyone can!
As a school, we have access to various resources developed by White Rose which are used within our lessons. Additionally, White Rose has developed a number of videos for parents and carers to watch at home. These videos are designed to assist parents/carers with supporting their children with essential maths skills at home.
