We use Herts for Learning Essential Maths Learning Sequences to help us teach the maths curriculum. The learning sequences are designed to cover the National Curriculum statements and key concepts, through small learning steps with a mastery approach to develop fluency, reasoning and problem solving. The learning sequences also aim to develop and consolidate conceptual understanding and procedural fluency, and include the use of speaking frames, talk partners, practice examples, games, destination questions and problem solving opportunities for the children to build upon and extend their learning. Teachers deliver careful modelling with concrete resources and pictorial representations to develop the children’s understanding.

We ask parents to support their child’s learning by discussing with them what they have learned at school, showing an interest in their home learning and taking the opportunity to count with them, help them to remember their multiplication tables and talk about maths as it occurs naturally in their lives, such as when shopping or cooking.
