At Hanley St Luke’s we teach a mastery curriculum for mathematics. We aim for all children to be confident and secure in their learning. Fluency, problem solving and reasoning is at the heart of every maths lesson. We teach through a structured, hands on approach beginning with concrete (physical resources), moving to pictorial representations (images) and finally abstract methods and calculations for all mathematical areas. We follow the White Rose Maths scheme, supplemented by other resources as appropriate. All classes work at the pace of the children, ensuring that their understanding is deepened and secure before moving on. Please see below for further information.
Assessing the curriculum
We use a variety of methods to assess our children to ensure they are making good progress and covering all the requirements of the National Curriculum. Teachers use a wealth of information from pupil books, lesson responses and short question and answer sessions to assess a child’s understanding and level of attainment. The school also uses formal standardised tests in reading and maths to build a rich picture of a child’s overall achievement. We track our children’s progress and attainment carefully to ensure children are working at expected levels. We have robust tracking systems in place to ensure that any child falling behind is supported to catch up quickly, wherever possible. We will always work with parents closely and share any concerns we may have and seek solutions together to support your child to achieve their potential.
How we teach phonics
The approach we use to teaching Phonics at St Luke’s is by following the ‘Letters and Sounds’ planning guidance. Phonics is taught daily in Nursery, Reception, Y1, Y2 and in KS2 where needed. However, we use a wider variety of real texts and experiences for the teaching of our wider English curriculum.
Letters and Sounds is a phonics resource published by the Department for Education and Skills in 2007. It aims to build children’s speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read by developing their phonic knowledge and skills. It sets out a detailed and systematic programme for teaching phonic skills for children starting by the age of five, with the aim of them becoming fluent readers by age seven.
