Maths Learning at Golden Hill
At Golden Hill, classes are usually mixed age groups, sometimes crossing Key Stages. Classes have a wide variety of ability and children have already completed various topics at their mainstream schools. Children often come into school disengaged from their learning and start at different points during the school year depending on when they have been excluded or referred. Children may arrive or leave mid-way through a topic.
Currently Y1 to Y4 teachers follow the Red Rose Maths Mastery Scheme. Yr 5 and 6 teachers aim to follow the LCC Scheme of Work with the most relevant age group for their class. Alongside this, a particular focus on mathematical methods will be taught where necessary in order to meet the needs of our children. This can change during the year. Please see the most recent newsletter to find out what each class is learning. To accommodate differing abilities of children, work is differentiated, accessing a variety of resources.
Referral children on a 12 week placement and who are significantly behind age related expectations, will also follow the Red Rose Maths Mastery Scheme. However, their main focus will be on number & place, addition & subtraction, multiplication & division
