Here at Tang Hall our principal aim is to develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding in Mathematics. We provide opportunities for children to experience aspirational learning. The school uses a variety of teaching and learning styles in maths lessons to support the different learning styles of the children. We also use investigation and exploration to develop the children’s own mathematical reasoning.
The National Curriculum for Mathematics in divided into Number, Calculation, Measurement, Geometry and Statistics.
We follow The White Rose Maths hub scheme of work. This scheme follows the key aspects of the curriculum and allows us to teach through fluency, reasoning and problem solving.
As part of our weekly Maths lessons we use a programme called Big Maths. https://www.bigmaths.com/
This follows a programme called CLIC which supports every child to become more confident with number work and calculation. It is important for children to be able to understand how numbers work so that they can use this understanding to solve problems.
Big maths lessons are fast, fun and fantastic. Children work on whiteboards and share their answers with their teachers and classmates. This fast pace helps the children to understand the importance of calculating maths facts quickly rather than counting on fingers.
Big Maths includes a variety of characters to make Maths more fun. They work together to help Maths make sense.
The four parts of our Friday CLIC session are:
