At Warren Academy we believe Mathematics is vital in everyday life. It is integral to all aspects of life and with this in mind we endeavour to ensure that all children develop a healthy and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them.

The intention of the maths curriculum at Warren Academy is to equip children with confidence, resilience and a depth of understanding in maths that will underpin and indeed fuel their future learning. We aim to convey the belief to students that by working hard at mathematics they can unlock endless potential and that making mistakes is an essential and a valuable opportunity for new learning.

Our approach at Warren Academy is under pinned by the principles of Power Maths, as we believe that this approach encourages a deep and connected understanding of mathematical ideas and concepts. We aim for our pupils to achieve mastery understanding through developing their procedural fluency and conceptual understanding.

  • problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

At Warren Academy, our lessons follow a consistent structure designed to provide a framework or structure that teachers use to plan and design their daily lessons to ensure that elements of a good lesson are always included. This familiar structure allows pupils to build confidence and lessens time needed to explain the structure freeing up thinking for the maths.

Our lesson structure is as follows:

Power up – Discover – Share – Think Together– Practice – Reflect

At Warren, we follow the Power Maths scheme and use this to plan and resource every maths lesson around the 5 Big Ideas.

We know that talking about maths helps embed and develop mathematical thinking and understanding. This aspect of teaching and learning is a particular focus at Warren Academy. In Maths we endeavor to ensure that we deliver language rich opportunities, to help the pupils’ ability to express their thinking about maths through talk and speaking like a mathematician (SLAM).
