We use the AET Mathematics to plan our lessons. This incorporates the NCETM (National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics) mastery questions. Our lessons are planned using a 5 stage process. We plan moving from representing and fluency (1 chilli questions) to using probing questions (2 chilli questions) to reasoning and explanation and complex questions (3 chilli questions). Within these different types of question problem solving plays an integral part. Our children will develop mathematical fluency and will be able to confidently and successfully undertake mathematical activities both in the classroom and the world beyond. Maths should be fun, inspiring and challenging with clear links to real life.
