At Holy Trinity we believe all children can achieve in Maths. We don't believe there are some people who "just can't do maths".

 

Doing Maths is like playing a musical instrument - it takes practice. Your Maths brain is like any other muscle that gets better the more you use it.

National Curriculum Aims for Maths

All children should develop:

  • Fluency - quick and accurate recall of key facts like times tables and number bonds, choosing appropriate strategies to solve a calculation

  • Reasoning - noticing the structure of numbers, making connections, justifying our thinking

  • Problem Solving - applying our understanding

We emphasise the importance of being stuck and having a go. In our Maths lessons everyone is expected to talk and explain their thinking. 

Our Approach

To help everyone understand new ideas in Maths, we use the Concrete Pictorial Abstract (CPA) approach:

Concrete - we use physical resources to bring the maths to life e.g. Numicon, blocks, counters

Pictorial - we build on our understanding by drawing Maths pictures, such as a bar model 

Abstract - when we are ready we move on to using numbers and key concepts confidently
