At Broad Chalke we aim to provide an ambitious and connect curriculum which is accessible to all pupils. We want pupils to become fluent in the fundamentals of Maths, to be able to reason and solve problems.
How we teach Maths at Broad Chalke
We are beginning to adopt a Maths Mastery approach to our teaching, which is encouraged by the National Curriculum. This approach dictates that children, once meeting the objectives, are extended through questioning, deep analysis and exploration to broaden their knowledge. This ensures that concepts are fully and securely understood before moving onto new objectives.
An essential part of teaching for mastery is the CPA approach (concrete, pictorial and abstract)
Working Walls are used in every classroom to support the children's learning in Maths. These walls contain current learning and equip the children to become more independent learners.
