At Harlesden we aim to give children exciting and engaging lessons that enable them to develop a 'can do' attitude and perceive themselves as Mathematcians. We achieve this by giving children problem solving opportunities, practical activities, mental maths and cross-curricular Maths. Collaboration and a growth mindset are outcomes we pursue through our personalised learning approach; helping and preparing children for Maths in the real world.
Yearly overview of maths curriculum
We use ladders to assess our children. Ladders are stuck in each child's book. From the objectives, the children choose which target to work on and date it each time they have met it. Pupil voice tells us that children enjoying seeing their strengths and next steps every time they open their Maths book.
