St. Christopher’s has chosen White Rose because it has a concrete-pictorial-abstract approach to mathematics to encourage fluency and mastery. It develops a deep understanding of number and the number system.

Learning is broken down in to small incremental steps that build on what the children should already know.

The whole school overview is below – along with more detailed descriptions of what children learn each year, in each term.

Children are continually assessed informally during maths lessons and also tested at the end of each block in order to identify and significant gaps in their skills or knowledge so that these can be addressed in subsequent lessons.
