“A mathematical concept or skill has been mastered when, through exploration, clarification, practice and application over time, a person can represent it in multiple ways, has the mathematical language to be able to communicate related ideas, and can think mathematically with the concept so that they can independently apply it to a totally new problem in an unfamiliar situation”

H. Drury, Mastering Mathematics; Teaching to Transform Achievement

“Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions”

Department for Education; Mathematics Programme of Study

The Mathematics Department at Winterton Community Academy aims for all pupils from Year 7 through to Year 11 to be able to apply concepts and skills learnt to problems that are both routine and non-routine.  To enable this, the Mathematics Curriculum is designed to meet the needs of learners with age appropriate content.  The Mathematics Curriculum for Year 7 directly connects with the Mathematics Curriculum of Year 5 and 6.  This will support the learning of our Year 7 pupils in transition from Primary as they will be able to be placed at an appropriate point on the Curriculum to support and challenge their learning.

As pupils progress through to Year 11, the Curriculum supports Foundation and Higher GCSE content.  There is a clear progression for Pupils moving from Year 5 and 6 to Year 11 with interconnecting skills and concepts taught.  This is done via Modules of work that are structured so that the skills that are required to develop new understanding of concepts are taught previously (either immediately or in preceding years).  Skills covered in Year 7 progress to new skills in Year 8, 9, 10 and 11 or with the Academic year itself.

We aim to differentiate activities not by lots of different activities but via the depth of learning of the concepts.  We aim to not simply learn new skills  but to take time to explore, practice and apply to routine and unfamiliar situations – in other word to Master a skill.
