Mathematics Curriculum

At Wylam First School we follow the White Rose Mathematics Curriculum. More information on White Rose maths can be found in the link below.
In September 2018 we moved to White Rose Mathematics after collaborative working with our partnership schools, with the aim of improving pupil outcomes at all phases within our partnership. White Rose Maths follows the National Curriculum and is a programme that breaks learning down into small steps to encourage deeper understanding and fluency. The programme also focuses on problem solving, mathematical reasoning and variation, where pupils are given regular opportunities to take part in investigative maths, using the knowledge and skills they have acquired.
We are also part of the NCETM Maths Hub which is a collaborative network which supports the implementation of the mastery approach. We have been working with the Maths Hub for a number of years now and are now at the 'Sustain' stage where our focus is to ensure the mastery approach is fully embedded with consistency across the school.
