Developing the language of reasoning in mathematics across the curriculum

by West Thornton Primary Academy, Croydon
Lesson Study Lead - Viv Woon

The teaching and learning of maths – in particular, reasoning – was a core priority for our school this year. This project was undertaken as a way of evaluating, developing and improving the teaching of maths across the school, to improve specific areas of teachers’ maths practice and to develop a deeper understanding of children’s learning. Through focussing on individual areas for improvement and unpicking the different barriers identified within children’s learning, the overall aim was to improve teachers’ confidence and ability when teaching maths, resulting in better quality teaching and improved progress and attainment.
