At Biscovey Nursery and Infants’ Academy we adopt a mastery approach to the teaching and learning of mathematics guided by the White Rose schemes of learning. This ensures that the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum are progressively met in a clear sequence of ‘small step’ learning opportunities. Teachers maintain the flexibility to adapt the learning and develop their own tasks and learning activities which meet the needs and engage the interests of their individual children and classes. Each child’s mathematics learning journey starts in our Nursery where we use ‘Master the Curriculum’ as our planning tool. Alongside this, purposefully planned provision allows children to develop their mathematical thinking.
