Mathematics

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.

Please read the Maths 2020-21 Expectations overview to ensure you have a deeper understadning of our processes in school.
