Our Curriculum

Here at Phoenix Infant and Nursery School, we follow the White Rose Maths scheme of learning in Foundation Stage 2 and across Key Stage One.

White Rose Maths is a scheme of work that has been carefully developed by a team of teachers and mathematicians dedicated to developing a Maths education for all children.

The scheme is designed to build confidence, competence and a deep understanding of Maths that will show secure learning and good progress.  

This scheme has broken down the Maths curriculum into 'blocks'.  Children will study these blocks for anywhere between 2 and 5 weeks at a time, and each block follows a series of small steps that securely builds learning up and gives children a deep understanding of what they are learning. 

Please have a look at the attached document that show the coverage for Maths in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage One.

There is also an example of what a 'block' looks like and the progression steps that the children will follow.
