Maths @ THS

At Thomas Hickman School we use we follow the White Rose maths curriculum and long term plan.  Teaching maths involves employing a range of mastery approaches that help students to develop a deep and secure knowledge and understanding of mathematics at each stage of their learning, so that by the end of every school year children will have acquired mastery of the mathematical facts and concepts they’ve been exposed to, equipping them to move on confidently and securely to more advanced material. Our teaching ensures high expectations for all pupils, and use of the concrete-pictorial-abstract approach. This approach develops children’s understanding from Concrete (handling objects, resources, manipulatives), on to Pictorial (visual images and representations), and then Abstract (symbolic stage with more formal strategies).
