At Hurst Drive Primary School, maths is taught daily in all year groups.
We have a focus on language acquisition and understanding and so expect children to answer in full sentences. Teachers provide children with opportunities to reason and to problem solve. Lessons are taught predominantly using the 6-part lesson structure which gives children a chance to rehearse their language skills, and our teachers the flexibility to change the direction of the lesson in light of their on-going assessment. We have maths meetings to build the fluency of facts that need to be instantly recalled and of areas of maths that we cover less frequently.
