At Yew Tree Primary School we value the importance of teaching approaches that give pupils the best chance in securing deep understanding of mathematical concepts and a varied fluency in applying them.
At Yew Tree Primary School, teachers and staff strive to deliver both depth and breadth and ensure that pupils grasp the fundamental concepts that will unlock the door to mastery. We strive to teach Maths across the wider curriculum therefore giving children the chance to apply their skills outside the Maths lesson.
We also want pupils to have a Growth Mindset ‘can do’ attitude by being mathematically resilient, determined in the face of a challenge, cooperative and creative and most importantly having a positive attitude to making mistakes and seeking solutions.
We use a variety of schemes such as White Rose and Third Space Learning to support our teaching.
