Mathematics at CAW

We are working hard at CAW to make the teaching and learning of mathematics as good as it can possibly be. This year has been a very exciting one for us as we have launched Mathematics Mastery in Early Years and Year 1. This approach is used across many schools in the country with great success. Please click on the link below for our Mathematics Mastery Policy to allow you to find out more about it:

Mathematics Mastery will move to an additional year group every curriculum year until ultimately it is taught in every year group. In 2018-19 we will start it in Year 3, in 2019-20 it will begin in Year 4, and so on.

In the meantime we have already built in a successful element of Mathematics Mastery into our curriculum for all year groups - Maths Meetings. These happen on most days of the week and are short sessions that are used to consolidate key areas of mathematics in each class. Maths Meetings provide an opportunity to teach and revise 'general knowledge maths' which may not explicitly be covered during the maths lesson, and also allows the daily integration of maths into the surrounding environment. This means that pupils are practicing concepts and skills on a regular basis, meaning they are continually building on their mastery of these concepts.

In Years 2 to 6, each child has a mathematics lesson of one hour each day, in addition to the Maths Meeting. Please click on the link below for Calculation Policy for these year groups:
