Junior School


At Malorees, we understand the importance of Mathematics providing a foundation for understanding the world. We recognise the importance of children being able to reason mathematically, develop an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject. We carefully aim to ensure that children gain a deep, conceptual understanding of a range of mathematical ideas, to ensure that our children can recognise relationships between current and prior learning.

At Malorees, we follow White Rose Maths schemes of learning which is designed to support a mastery approach to teaching and learning, as well as to support the aims and objectives of the National Curriculum. We believe that children will acquire a deep and sustained understanding, if they are able to explore concepts using concrete apparatus and pictorial representations. Teaching in this way allows children to have an embedded understanding of each strand of mathematics, so that as they progress through the key stages, they become confident, competent, well-rounded mathematicians. This equips children with the skills to choose appropriate methods for efficiency once they move to upper key stage 2.


Our aims for pupils at Malorees are:

  • An understanding of the important mathematical concepts and an ability to make connections.
  • A broad range of skills in using and applying mathematics.
  • Fluent knowledge and recall of number facts and the number system.
  • The ability to show initiative in solving problems in a wide range of contexts, including the new or unfamiliar.
  • The ability to think independently and to persevere when faced with challenges.
  • To embrace the value of learning from mistakes and false starts.
  • The ability to articulate mathematical reasoning, generalisations and make sense of solutions.
  • Fluency in performing written and mental calculations and mathematical techniques.
  • A wide range of mathematical vocabulary.
  • A commitment to and enthusiasm in the subject.
