At  Brabourne,  all  teachers  use  the  White  Rose  Maths  Hub  as  a  process  for  teaching  mathematics.  When  introducing  children  to  new  concepts,  they  should  have  the  opportunity  to  build  fluency  in  topics  by  taking  the  following  approach:   Concrete  –  children  should  have  the  opportunity  to  use  concrete  objects  and  manipulatives  to  help  them  understand  what  they   are  doing.   Pictorial  –  children  should  build  on  this  concrete  approach  by  using  pictorial  representations. These  representations  can  then   be  used  to  reason  and  solve  problems.   Abstract  –  with  the  foundations  firmly  laid,  children  should  be  able  to  move  to  an  abstract  approach  using  numbers  and  key   concepts  with  confidence.   Reasoning  and  problem  solving  is  encompassed  in  the  above  approaches  to  deepen  and  master  all  aspects  of  mathematics.   This  policy  outlines  the  different  calculation  strategies  that  should  be  taught  and  used  from  Year  R  to  Year  6  in  line  with the requirements of the Primary National Curriculum 2014. We offer workshops for parents across the school year on ways to support children’s learning.
