Maths at KAA is taught in blocks of learning which follow a clear progression each year.
This progression is based on the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM) progression in mathematics documents.
At Kings Ash Academy, we adopt a mastery approach to teaching mathematics.
‘Mastering maths means pupils acquiring a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject.
The phrase ‘teaching for mastery’ describes the elements of classroom practice and school organisation that combine to give pupils the best chances of mastering maths. Achieving mastery means acquiring a solid enough understanding of the maths that’s been taught to enable pupils to move on to more advanced material.’
