An engaging and accessible style of mathematics teaching, inspired by Singapore and Shanghai. This approach enhances mathematical understanding, enjoyment and achievement for every child.

 

At St Peters, we have high expectations for ALL our children and we firmly believe that all children can become confident and skilled mathematicians.

Our aims are that our children gain: 

  • Deep and sustainable learning
  • An ability to build on previous knowledge
  • An ability to reason about a concept and make connections
  • Sound procedural and conceptual understanding 

 

What you will typically see:

  • The large majority of our pupils progress through the curriculum content at the same pace.
  • Differentiation is achieved by emphasising deep knowledge and through individual support and intervention.
  • Practice and consolidation play a central role. Carefully designed variation within this builds fluency and understanding of underlying mathematical concepts in tandem.
  • Teachers use precise questioning in class to test conceptual and procedural knowledge, and assess pupils regularly to identify those requiring intervention so that all pupils keep up.

 

Teachers will use the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach (CPA) to ensure that procedural and conceptual understanding are developed simultaneously.
