Maths at Eppleton

 Maths Curriculum 

 

At Eppleton, our maths curriculum is designed to secure, for all children, a fluency in number and an ability to manipulate number to support problem solving and reasoning. Through the Mastery approach, all children are able to make progress, particularly through the CPA approach (Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract) Our curriculum aims to provide cross-curricula opportunities to allow children to apply their maths learning in context, particularly in science. We believe it is important for our children to develop resilience and problem solving skills through their maths learning in order to prepare them for life-long learning.

 

"We want our children to understand and be able to explain their maths learning with passion and excitement".

"Pupils get the chance to return to areas of mathematics on a regular basis. They can explain how they gain more knowledge each time they revisit. This is because new learning builds upon what pupils already know or can do. In 2019, pupils’ progress in mathematics across key stage 2 was significantly above average. Many pupils say that mathematics is their favourite subject".
