To support your children further in their mathematics learning, Rolleston uses a scheme of learning called "Maths, No Problem". It is based upon teaching methods used in Singapore where children have a 96% pass rate in mathematics and they have some of the best mathematics in the WORLD. We expect that your children, because of the scheme, will improve their maths skills and confidence enormously. We tailor our maths lessons to ensure that children of all abilities are catered for and stretched to achieve their maximum potential while always ensuring that we use the 'CPA' Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract) approach to mathematical learning across all year groups.
Assertive Mentoring is a new system that we have started to roll out this year. It involves weekly skills test of children in all classes that assesses the children's understanding of age appropriate mathematical concepts which informs teacher interventions, planning and maths starters. Summative, half-termly tests also ensure that out teachers' assessments are accurate and robust, whilst ensuring that children are constantly revisiting and mastering prior learning and understanding of their year groups maths objectives. Later on in the year, this system will be expanded to incorporate target setting and 1 to 1 mentoring sessions between children and their teacher. This will ensure that children understand the next steps in their learning in maths and support them in their aspiration to meet these targets.
