At Heron Park we aim to embed positive attitudes to Maths, giving our pupils the opportunity to develop their confidence and skills to use Mathematics as a natural part of their lives. Our objective is to develop a "can do" attitude to solving mathematical problems using logic, visual manipulatives and determination, following methods and concepts taught through the AET Maths Mastery curriculum.
The key features of the Mastery curriculum are:
High expectations for every child
Stress on the importance of number sense and place value
Resources used to assist understanding
Greater depth in each topic
Understanding of the reasoning behind methods
Problem solving across all topics
Our overarching aim is to foster an enthusiastic attitude to the subject, with teachers planning exciting, challenging lessons for pupils of all abilities, resulting in children who are fluent in the fundamentals of the subject and keen to use their knowledge to explore and investigate mathematical problems.
An exciting online platform for times table learning is used by the pupils: Times Table Rockstars, which allows competitions within classes and across the Key Stage.
