Maths at Trinity

At Trinity we believe that every child can succeed at Maths.  Exploration and enjoyment are at the heart of our teaching which aims to foster a deep and long-term understanding of key concepts.  Our Maths Mastery curriculum has the following key features:

An emphasis on developing confident mathematicians who think mathematically rather than just ‘doing the Maths’ by looking for patterns, structures and relationships.
A focus on developing number fact fluency.  A significant amount of time is spent reinforcing addition and subtraction facts in KS1 and times tables in KS2 as this affects children’s success in other area of mathematics.
A small step approach that gives pupils time to really explore and develop their understanding.  
Built-in reasoning and problem-solving challenges that provide pupils with the opportunity to develop a ‘deeper’ understanding of mathematical concepts.
A safe, supported space in which pupils can share their ideas.  Mistakes are an important part of the learning process and arevaluable opportunities to address misconceptions.
Closely monitored interventions for those children who need extra support.

We use the White Rose Approach across the school, adapting it to suit the needs of our year groups.
