Mallard Primary School


Childrens’ mathematical understanding is developed through the use of concrete apparatus such as Numicon and Base Ten. They then move on to using pictorial representations before developing abstract approaches. Children are taught standard written algorithms once understanding is secure. Fluency, reasoning and problem solving underpin our maths curriculum. The use of mathematical language is promoted through the use of talk for learning.

We currently follow the White Rose scheme of work. As from September 2018, we will be participating in the Mastery Maths programme with Doncaster research school.
