Rationale:

Mathematics is an important creative discipline that helps us to understand and change the World. We want all Nechells pupils to experience the beauty, power and enjoyment of mathematics and develop a sense of curiosity about the subject.

At Nechells Academy, we foster positive ‘can do’ attitudes, believing all children can achieve in mathematics, and teach for secure and deep understanding of mathematical concepts. We use mistakes and misconceptions as an essential part of learning and provide challenge through rich and sophisticated problems before accelerating into new content.

Intent:

We aim for all pupils to:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics (see Year by Year Curriculum Maps) so that they develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • Solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including in unfamiliar contexts and to model real-life scenarios.
  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry and develop and present a justification, argument or proof using mathematical language.
  • Have an appreciation of number and number operations, which enables mental calculations and written procedures to be performed efficiently, fluently and accurately.

 

Implementation:

At Nechells we have two separate daily lessons which enable us to effectively deliver our Maths curriculum.

We hold a daily Maths Meeting which is designed to help our pupils ‘keep up’ with the Maths curriculum. We deliver deliberate practise, arithmetic, intervention through gap getting and pre-teaching to support our most vulnerable pupils.

We also have a daily Maths lesson. This is to teach more specific aspects of Maths through a small step. Pupils are encouraged to learn together and are supported to learn new content whilst being continuously challenged through the level of depth of that small step of learning.

Maths lesson Design:
Each lesson focuses on a manageable step of new learning based on the National Curriculum Statements.

1.    Retrieve It:

Introduction, reference to prior learning

2.    Teach It:

Modelling of the new learning with explicit use of potential misunderstandings

3.    Practise It:

All children practise together (Support and Challenge)

4.    Do It:

Up to 6 examples- 4 what it is and 2 what it is also (Challenge 1: Procedural Fluency)

5.    Twist It:

1 or 2 Misunderstandings (True/False, Spot the mistake) (Challenge 2: Conceptual Variation and Deeper Understanding)

6.    Solve It:

Apply understanding to solve new problems (Challenge 3: Mathematical Thinking)

7.    Review It:
