Even as a young child in Primary school, I have always loved Maths! I feel a huge sense of pride when I see a child 'click' with their learning and I enjoy trying to find different ways to approach a maths problem so that it makes clear connections and allows children to develop their confidence. My role as a Maths Leader has taken me on a fascinating journey, attending national training to become a Teaching for Mastery Specialist with the SHaW (Shropshire, Herefordshire and Wolverhampton) Maths Hub. I am passionate about sharing this expertise so that all children in every class can benefit from effective maths teaching.
At Colwall, in addition to the National Curriculum, we have three main aims for all children in this subject. These aims have been identified by the teaching staff as the three things that we feel we should offer children to prepare them for life beyond Colwall. These aims are our ‘intent’, the ‘implementation’ is how we aim to cover these aims and the ‘impact’ are key questions that we hope will demonstrate how the children have met the intention.
