Overview of Subject
How often is this subject taught?                      Maths is taught daily in every class from Foundation to Year 6.

                                                       In Foundation, Maths is a 30 minutes a day with input and
                                                       independent practice within this time. And maths mash up takes
                                                       place every afternoon 5-10 minutes.

                                                       Y1, Y2 have maths for 55 minutes a day and mash up 10 minutes
                                                       daily.
                                                       Y 3, 4, 5 and 6 have maths for an hour daily and 15 minutes of mash
                                                       up daily.

Are there schemes of work in place for this subject?   Staff use the White Rose blocks in order to plan their sequence of
                                                       lessons alongside FRP support and worksheets from White Rose.

How is your subject monitored?                         The subject is monitored through drop ins, learning walks,
                                                       observations, peer observations/team teaching, book audits and pupil
