Maths

At Bishop Gilpin we seek to develop a love of learning in maths.  We collaborate with a Maths Hub to help ensure that we are utilising the latest research evidence on effective methods.  We utilise the White Rose curriculum which is based upon a concrete, pictorial abstract approach.  We engage in structured spaced learning to support the development of recall and retrieval of pupils to support their long term memory.

Our children talk about their learning in Maths in every lesson, as using mathematical vocabulary and understand that being able to explain their reasoning is a key mathematical skill.

We use technology in Maths lessons to help our children visualise mathematical concepts, to model real-life situations and to make learning number facts fun. 

Our high expectations and engaging teaching help ensure that our children make strong progress and attain well, whilst developing a love of learning in maths.
