Welcome to Primary Phase Maths

The maths curriculum at William Hulme’s Grammar School provides children with the opportunity to build an understanding of different areas of Mathematics. The key areas are NumberMeasurementGeometry and Statistics. Each year, children are introduced to new concepts within the key areas of learning to deepen their understanding. Within each unit, children follow a small steps approach to gain a full understanding of every topic. Our aim is for children to develop number sense so that they can choose the appropriate written or mental method to solve a problem. Children will develop fluencyreasoning and problem-solving skills in order to achieve mastery in each area. Fluency involves children using the most appropriate method in order to complete a task. Reasoning involves children being able to explain how to reach the correct answer to different mathematical problems. Finally, problem solving involves children applying their knowledge and skills in different contexts.

The ambition of our maths curriculum is for all pupils to achieve the year-by-year expectations outlined in the curriculum.  That is, that all pupils are taught the full content of the curriculum and that with reference to the key performance indicators outlined for each year group, all pupils are taught to achieve these. Our maths curriculum follows a mastery approach. Mastery means that pupils should be able to recall and apply what they have learnt at another point in the future rather than just at the time they first meet an idea or technique. Achievements throughout the year contribute to evidence of mastery by the end of the year.
