Whiterose Maths

At Ixworth we have been using Whiterose Maths for some time alongside other schemes for Mathematics; we have now adopted the approach fully as we feel that it best fits our pupils needs and it allows us to deliver lessons that will ensure progress and engagement.

Lessons are designed to follow the concrete, pictorial and abstract (CPA) approach and allow children of all abilities to explore maths through using and applying. A typical lesson may begin with a game or a song relating to number facts where the children will revise and build on known numbers facts for their age range, then move on to a session which uses a range of equipment (concrete) that will support children to explore concepts and strategies to really gain a deeper understanding of the area of mathematics they are learning about.

Whiterose mantra

"As we prove this to pupils and teachers alike, we’re shaping assured, happy and resilient mathematicians who relish the challenge of maths. They become independent, reflective thinkers, whose skills not only liberate them in maths but also support them across the curriculum. "
