At Welholme Academy we recognise that Mathematics is essential to everyday life and will equip our children with the skills necessary to become successful learners in their future education, ensure that they have a good understanding of financial literacy and essentially, be proactive and collaborative members of the community.
At Welholme Academy, Y1-Y6 follow White Rose teaching for mastery maths scheme which has been written to support teachers in all aspects of their planning and curriculum design whilst delivering Singapore Maths Mastery methods effectively. Foundation link to the rest of the school by following the White Rose planning. The Foundation overview has been split into number and shape, space and measure. Each section starts with the ELG. The development matters statements are used to break the ELGs down into smaller steps. This is to support our ethos of spending longer on some topics to ensure children have a deep understanding before moving on to the next topic.
