Maths at Hampton Dene

How we teach Maths at Hampton Dene

 

Teachers spend as much time as possible in direct teaching and questioning of the whole class, a group of pupils, or individuals. For a large proportion of the lesson children will be taught as a whole class with the teacher using a range of differentiated questions to develop mathematical thinking. Teaching strategies will be varied and will encourage a high level of interaction. Teachers place strong emphasis on the development of mental calculation skills. Children are asked to explain their methods and to check for reasonableness. There is also strong emphasis on the development of mathematical vocabulary. Key words are displayed and teachers ensure that they model the correct use of mathematical words. Teachers value pupils’ oral contributions and create an ethos in which all children feel they can contribute. Activities are planned to encourage the full and active participation of all pupils and teachers differentiate tasks during the main part of the lesson in order to meet the needs of all abilities.  Lessons have an emphasis on using kinaesthetic approaches to engage and motivate children. Children normally sit in ability groups to enable focused teaching to one group during pupil activities.
