How we teach Maths at Wildmoor Heath
We use a freely available scheme of learning produced by the White Rose Maths Hub to support the teaching of Mathematics in Years 1-6.
The scheme is designed to develop a deep understanding, or mastery, of mathematics using the 'Concrete, pictorial, abstract' (CPA) approach. Developed by American psychologist, Jerome Bruner, the CPA approach is the mainstay of mathematics teaching in Singapore. Children can find maths difficult because it is abstract. The CPA approach helps children learn new ideas and build on their existing knowledge by introducing abstract concepts in a more familiar and tangible way.
