This programme takes a day-in-the-life look beyond the classroom at maths planning and development at Great Barr Primary School, in Birmingham.
We see elements that go into progression in primary maths, developed from the early years foundation stage and KS1.
Senior staff, including the maths co-ordinator, are linking the schools enquiry-based approach to learning with the new maths framework.
Teaching assistants deliver one-to-one WAVE3 interventions with pupils who have barriers in their maths understanding, feeding back to teachers.
In nursery, we look at assessment and how idea is generated . A pupil's progress is discussed by a key worker and a parent to elicit help at home.
During the afternoon foundation stage hold an INSPIRE workshop where the maths curriculum is explained to parents.
In the evening the governors' curriculum committee is seen in session monitoring maths delivery across the school.
