Here at Harris Academy Tottenham we teach the National Maths Curriculum using a Math Mastery style approach.

Children’s chances of success are maximised if they develop deep and lasting understanding of mathematical procedures and concepts and therefore our curriculum is broken down into the National Curriculum strands and taught with a reasoning and problem-solving focus.

Mathematics is an interconnected subject in which pupils need to be able to move fluently between representations of mathematical ideas and have the language of the mathematics involved.

The programmes of study are, by necessity, organised into apparently distinct domains, but pupils should make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems.

  • Number - number and place value
  • Number - addition and subtraction
  • Number - multiplication and division
  • Number - fractions (including decimals and percentages)
  • Measurement
  • Geometry - properties of shapes
  • Geometry - position and direction
  • Statistics
  • Ratio and proportion
  • Algebra
