At John Wilkinson, we are working with the SHAW Maths Hub to develop and implement a 'teaching for mastery' approach to maths. We believe that everyone can become a confident mathematician and aim to provide every child with the skills, vocabulary and resilience to meet this aim.
Our curriculum is planned around the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) resources which help break down learning into small steps.
For this academic year (2021- 2022), the school is using the curriculum prioritisation schedule in year 2 and year 6. This is to ensure that the children have closed as many learning gaps as possible prior to being assessed at the end of the Key Stage without losing any of the benefits of high quality teaching for deep learning.
