Fernhurst Primary School


Maths at Fernhurst is taught using the White Rose Maths framework.

White Rose Maths is a resource that has been designed for UK schools based on research and extensive experience of teaching and learning around the world and here in the UK. It has been designed to support and challenge all pupils, and is built on the belief that EVERYONE can learn maths successfully.

The philosophy behind White Rose Maths is that being successful in maths is not just about rote-learning procedures and methods, but is instead about problem solving, thinking and discussing. Many people feel they were taught maths in a way that was about memorising formulas and calculation methods, then having to apply them without any real understanding of how these methods actually work.

In Key Stage 2 pupils use Century Learning to practice and improve their skills.  It also ensures that the pupils work at the level and pace that is right for them.  

Below you will find our calculation policies alongside a progression of skills and ready to progress document.  These are used in school to ensure that the children are accessing the most appropriate learning in school.  You can use these at home to see the strategies and learning content that your child is experiencing in school as well as what came before and what will be next.  Please speak with your class teacher if you would like to know more.
