Appleby Primary School


This year at Appleby, we have been reviewing the way that we teach mathematics as part of our ongoing cycles of school improvement. We have been running a pilot to establish a mastery approach to the teaching of mathematics in years 5 and 6. 

This new approach for Appleby Primary School is based upon the latest research in the effective teaching of mathematics by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM). Our project has been facilitated by the North West Maths Hub and Lancaster University. 


This project has been going so well that we intend to extend this new approach to maths teaching across the school. We will be accessing resources produced by White Rose Mathematics. 


In the current circumstances due to the Covid-19, we have brought forward our access to these fantastic teaching resources. White Rose Mathematics have produced a series of daily maths lessons for pupils from Early Years to Year 8 which children can access online. Simply click the link below:
