Maths

Welcome to Maths at Springfield Junior School

At Springfield we adopt the Mastery style of teaching. This allows pupils of all abilities to make good progress in their work and have a deepened understanding of the skills they are taught.

Daily Maths lessons are taught in classes by the class teacher. The classes also have the support of a teaching assistant.

We follow the White Rose Maths planning and work our way through the topics using practical, pictorial, concrete and abstract learning. This allows all pupils to develop a deep understanding. We promote the use of The Singapore Bar as a way of understanding written problems.

In line with the government recommendation, the teacher does not move on to a new topic until at least 85% of the class have ‘mastered’ the area being taught.

At the end of each half-term the children sit a test which covers all aspects of the learning that term. The teachers use this test, alongside the work in pupil’s books, to make a professional judgement on the level the child is working at.

Cross curricular Maths is included in many of the afternoon lessons which allows the children to apply their skills.

If you wish to further your understanding of Mastery or The Singapore Bar please see Mrs Staddon or have a look on the NCETM website.
