Maths Mastery at East Wittering
How is Mathematics taught at East Wittering?
Our math overviews
Each year group follows the White Rose overview, however teachers have the flexibility to move blocks around to best suit their children.
The purpose for the math booklets is to inform parents of the ways in which they can help their children with their mathematics, for I have frequently been asked by parents what they can do in order to support their children’s maths work at home.
Parents play an important role in improving their children’s maths, as most maths we do is based on problems that they encounter in the world outside of the classroom, and as such there are lots of opportunities for parents to question their children and improve their understanding. These booklets will therefore hopefully act as a guide and support for parents enabling them to take a more active role in improving their children’s numeracy.
If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to get in contact with myself or your child’s class teacher
