Maths at Rodmersham
The White Rose Maths Scheme
In school we use The White Rose Scheme for Maths. This scheme is written in blocks, for every year group and each block comes with a set of lessons, which are often accompanied by videos and/or power points.
Master the Curriculum
For our younger children we have started to use Master the Curriculum, which follows the White Rose Scheme of work but provides greater opportunities for practical work, which is something that the children at Rodmersham benefit from.
Blocks of learning
For each year group, the scheme of learning includes an overview of the maths that your child should be learning at any point in the year.
Each year is split into three terms (autumn, spring and summer), and each term comprises individual blocks of learning about a particular topic.
You’ll notice that we spend lots of time building strong number skills in Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and early secondary years. These essential core skills lay a solid foundation for more complicated learning later on.
Sometimes we might be a little behind or ahead of the scheme schedule. That’s fine; we deliberately build flexibility into the scheme to allow for these variations. The priority for the children is to master the mathematical concept in small coherent steps, regardless of how long this takes
White Rose Booklets for home
White Rose Maths have produced a range of work booklets for parents and children to use. These booklets are a fantastic resource that supports the learning the children are doing within their lesson in school. These booklets can be found on Amazon for the Kindle allowing you to access the booklets without the need of a printer.
