At Malvern Way, a ‘teaching for mastery’ approach to Maths enables us to effectively deliver the two aims of the EYFS curriculum; number and numerical patterns and the three aims of the National Curriculum; fluency, reasoning and problem solving.

Basic skills are the foundations on which all learning is built and allows deep connections to be made. A focus on mathematical talk ensures our children are confident to explain their reasoning. The children apply their learning to a variety of increasingly complex problems and learn to persevere in the face of challenge.
