The Harris Academy Purley Schemes of Learning have been written in line with the aims and ethos of the new national curriculum and assessments. This has been an exciting opportunity to re-examine the principals of how we teach mathematics across all key stage groups.
We have designed our curriculum such that it reflects the linear nature of Mathematics with opportunities to revisit and consolidate learning so that concepts are not superficially covered but learnt and understood in greater depth.
The principals we are striving for in terms of the mastery curriculum encompass the five big ideas as illustrated below.
Connecting new ideas to concepts that have already been understood, and ensuring that, once understood and mastered, new ideas are used again in next steps of learning, all steps being small steps.
Representation and Structure
Representations used in lessons expose the mathematical structure being taught, the aim being that students can do the maths without recourse to the representation.
If taught ideas are to be understood deeply, they must not merely be passively received but must be worked on by the student, thought about, reasoned with and discussed with others.
Quick and efficient recall of facts and procedures and the flexibility to move between different contexts and representations of mathematics.
Varying the way a concept is initially presented to students, by giving examples that display a concept as well as those that do not display it. Also, carefully varying practice questions so that mechanical repetition is avoided, and thinking is encouraged.
Finally, we are committed to giving our students the best possible mathematics education so that when they leave us; they can compete with their counterparts from other institutions-whether private or state owned.
