Maths Planning at Winterbourne Earls


At Winterbourne Earls Maths is planned and coordinated by teachers using the White Rose Mastery resources alongside other resources to support the topic being taught. Teachers are encourgaed to teach maths using engaging activities embed an ethos of problem solving and reasoning. All classes use manipulatives, when appropriate, in order to embed mathematical concepts in the concrete stage. We have invested in maths resources for all areas of the currciulum to support learners throught the three stages: concrete, pictorial and abstract. All children are expected to achieve well in maths and access mastery activities for different concepts.


Children have different levels of challenge they can choose during maths lessons. In KS1 children can choose mild, spicy or extra hot!

In KS2 children select from activities in paddling, snorkelling or diving levels. Children have reported that they enjoy choosing their challenge and feel motivated to do well in the level they select.
