At Park Hall Academy our teaching approach is based upon the mastery model. We believe ALL learners can achieve in and enjoy mathematics. We are committed to delivering mathematics in innovative ways that link to real-life experiences. Stimulating curiosity, empowering learners to reach their full potential and equipping all with the skills they need in life. Mathematics is a creative and highly connected discipline, used to analyse and communicate information and ideas. Our aim is to ensure our mathematicians appreciate the beauty and power of mathematics. Numbers are magic, they keep the world spinning, they don't have an end, or a beginning!
Mathematics Learning Journey
Intent for our mathematicians
We aim for:
Declarative knowledge 'I know that'
Learners to develop their automatic recall of core facts, formulae and concepts
Procedural knowledge 'I know how'
Learners to make connections between concepts
Conditional knowledge 'I know when'
Learners to reason mathematically and solve problems
Learners to use a variety of representations to demonstrate understanding and articulate fully in discussion “how” they have calculated rich and sophisticated problems
Learners to have a growth-mindset– through hard work, practise and a willingness to see mistakes as part of their journey, they can succeed
Learners to gain enjoyment through a growing self-confidence in their ability
Learners to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations which will support them to develop an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
Learners to 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
Learners to know mathematics is an interconnected subject making rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems
Learner to apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects

Our Curriculum Offer:
Our children will become mathematicians through the use of the DfE approved ‘Power Maths’ scheme which is fully aligned with the White Rose Maths Hub scheme. Our maths curriculum, which meets the objectives guided by the National Curriculum for Maths, is planned in small steps to allow for deeper understanding and allows children to review prior learning in order for them to see that Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline.
Our teaching approach is based upon the mastery model. Children working at mastery can: recall rapidly and accurately mathematical facts; make connections between concepts; use a variety of representations to demonstrate understanding and articulate fully in discussion “how” they have calculated rich and sophisticated problems.
This is achieved through ensuring the 5 big ideas in teaching for mastery are incorporated into lesson design. Our children will use the concrete pictorial abstract approach using physical and visual aids to build their understanding of abstract concepts- recognising the power of thinking not just doing, which in turn will allow all to see patterns and make connections. Children will think about, reason with and discuss with others their mathematical thinking. They will work on different representations of the same mathematical idea, showcasing to our children the different conceptual ideas that underpin a concept and gain a deeper understanding through procedural variation.
Mathematics has provided the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. We aim to provide a high-quality mathematics education that will provide for our children a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
We believe maths nurtures the development of a logical and methodical mindset and gives children incredible tools to help them to understand the world. It can open doors for our children in a dazzling array of fields, such as engineering, physics, architecture, medicine and business, and literally transform lives.
