For Years 1-6 in the 2016 -17 academic year, our objectives for maths planning are taken from the Lancashire planning grids. As a SLT, we have grouped learning objectives into long term plans for each year group (these are available upon request). It is our teaching philosophy that all children can make good or outstanding progress when they are given enough time and confidence. Teachers therefore follow the order of the units but do not move on to a new objective until all children (with the possible exception of children with SEN) have mastered the key concepts. Children are continually challenged and opportunities are sought wherever possible to apply learning to real-life situations or problem solving.
