Welcome to our Maths page



At Whitings Hill, we follow the White Rose schemes of learning to help us to learn in Maths.  This follows the mastery curriculum.


The National Curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all children:

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that children have conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately
  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.


In our Maths lessons, we will use concrete materials to help us to develop a conceptual understanding of different areas of the curriculum, for example Numicon and place value counters.  Once we are confident, we move onto drawing pictorial representations then will look at abstract methods.

Progression in Maths skills

Rocket Maths and Times Table Challenge

It is important that our children develop a positive attitude towards mathematics with a competence and confidence in mathematical knowledge, concepts and skills. We aim to achieve fluency in number through varied and frequent practice of key number facts and by providing regular opportunities for children to apply their knowledge of facts rapidly and accurately. With this in mind, we have organised our maths challenges: Rocket Maths for the younger children and Times Table Challenge for the older ones. 

Times Table Rock STars

From years 2-6 we also use Times Table Rock Stars to help us to improve our times table knowledge. Each month, all the children take part in a battle.  We are in our house teams for our battles and the winning house gets 20 House Points.

Our last battle ended on Friday 18th October.

The results were:

1st - Nupton - 146,232

2nd - Trinder - 72,951
