Maths at Hester’s Way Primary School

We follow a mastery approach at HWPS and we aim to produce confident well-rounded mathematicians who believe that they can do it! We use the White Rose Maths programme and other resources such as Kangaroo Maths to aid planning and coverage. In lessons the children are guided through their key learning point through a PowerPoint and have access to a variety of resources to aid their learning. We follow a lesson approach where children “Do it” and then this is followed by Twist it and Deepen it challenges.

We also follow the 3 aims of the National curriculum.


The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:

 become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply 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

Please note the Reception Class may transition to the Mastery Maths approach depending on the needs of the cohort.
