At LCPS, we have adopted White Rose Maths as a scheme of learning to provide our children with a mastery approach to maths. Each topic is organised into small steps of progression ensuring new knowledge is built upon prior learning. Lessons contain opportunities for reasoning and problem solving to enable children to apply their knowledge and strengthen their memory of new learning.
Teachers use a Concrete. Pictorial. Abstract. (CPA) approach to lessons enabling all children to access the lesson content. Concrete teaching involves manipulatives and hands on learning; Pictorial transfers the concrete aspects into images in children's books; Abstract uses the number system and removes previous support steps.
