Rustington Community Primary School uses Maths-No Problem as the basis for its teaching in this subject. It is a spiral curriculum in which knowledge is reinforced and built upon as children progress through the school. Maths-No Problem follows a mastery approach in which topics are taught for a number of weeks to allow time for most children to master the concepts. The deeper understanding this gives children, enables them to apply their learning to problem solving and investigations.
The use of concrete and pictorial resources, prior to working more abstractly, is key to the success of this approach and children routinely use manipulatives as an aide to understanding. Our maths lessons also promote discussion and exploration with a strong emphasis on mathematical language and reasoning. Through carefully constructed questioning and varied practice, children at Rustington Community Primary School develop fluency and build confidence.
Our Maths lead Mrs Hicks has produced videos for parents which explain how the children learn addition, subtraction, multiplication and division so you can help your child at home.
