At Colham Manor, our vision is to ensure our children thrive in maths through their confidence to
explain and reason. We know how children can experience a sense of awe and wonder as they solve problems, discover different solutions and make links between different areas of mathematics so we want pupils, from EYFS to Year 6, to have a deep understanding of the subject through a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach. This
will ensure all our pupils fully understand what they are learning. At Colham Manor, these skills are embedded within our Maths lessons using the White Rose Scheme from Reception to Year 6, with Nursery using objectives from Development Matters, to build consistency over time.


We are devoted to ensuring that children are able to recognise the importance of Maths in the wider world
and that they are also able to use their mathematical skills and knowledge confidently in their lives in a range
of different contexts. We embed this further through our 'Learning Means the World' cross-curricular themes and through our assemblies, by sharing famous mathematicians and their contributions.

Our aim is for children to:
∙ become fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics
∙ be able to reason mathematically
∙ be able to solve problems through applying Mathematics

Colham Manor has a supportive ethos and this approach nurtures the children's collaborative and independent skills, deepening their empathy and ability to recognise the achievement of others.

We are committed to ensuring a love of learning and instilling confidence in our pupils.

How Can I Support My Child's Learning?



Some ideas...


  • Make the most of shopping trips and other outings – talk about spending money and calculating change. Does your child understand the offers they see on signs or adverts in shops?
  • Maths is a broad subject, and encompasses topics like measure and shape! Can your child recognise shapes in their everyday surroundings? Can they tell the time, or use weighing scales?
  • Think about how you can involve your child in everyday problem solving. You may be planning a party, or cooking dinner. Many tasks involve sharing, or using fractions!

The White Rose 1-minute maths app


The app is aimed at pupils up to the age of 6. Children can choose any topic they want to try. They then have 1 minute individual tasks to answer a unique series of questions. When the 1 minute is up, they’ll see a feedback screen telling them how they’ve done.
