Ambleside Primary School Students & Teacher


Within maths, staff follow a maths mastery approach. The majority of the class are taught the ARE for their year group with differentiation where appropriate.

Maths Mysteries are taught twice a day. In the morning there is a refresher section focussing on arithmetic. The afternoon session again focusses on arithmetic but goes into more depth and allows fuller discussion.

We follow a weekly schedule of 4 days of new learning and 1 day of arithmetic/recapping/quizzes on previous learning. Varied fluency plays a vital role in the teaching of maths. Times Tables are also a focus ensuring the children have key skills to access a range of question types.
