'Our Curriculum Promise'
Here at Bishop Martin we aim to give our children the confidence to achieve mathematically, in the hope that we enhance their chances of success in later life. We encourage children to be determined and resilient as they face each challenge set to them. Maths at Bishop Martin is designed to develop their confidence through small, incremental steps to ensure the mastery of each new concept.
After careful consideration and research we have chosen to use the Maths No Problem resources to enhance our mastery approach to teaching. Children build on a range of strategies and approaches towards Maths as they progress through school, they see a real reason for the subject and are prepared for future education and life. All children are encouraged to develop independence and show the skills of perseverance and resilience, they are encouraged to develop and show perseverance and resilience in daily lessons.
Staff at Bishop Martin work to foster a life-long love of Maths through a rich, purposeful and rigorous experience within a structured planning format that follows sequenced lessons, which are coherently planned and build upon prior learning and vocabulary. All children are challenged and are exposed to an element of Mastery within their Maths lessons, children are taken out of their comfort zone on a daily basis and are encouraged to verbalise their thought process by explaining their process and methods.
