"Good mathematics is not about how many answers you know but about what you do when you don't know"
- Christy Bailey McManus
At Bedgrove Junior School we aim to deliver a maths curriculum that is accessible to all and one that inspires children to reach their full potential. We aim to provide all children with the knowledge and tools needed in order to progress through KS2 and to allow pupils to transition to secondary school as confident and well-rounded mathematicians. We hope that our children will enjoy maths through delivering lessons that are engaging and do not cap the learning of any child through use of self-differentiation; we do not anticipate the ability of our children through our expectations and therefore all children are on the same learning journey. In all lessons children should feel challenged by accessing multiple methods and activities in order to improve both fluency and conceptual understanding. We aim for all of our children to make sustained progress and succeed in spite of background or ability. We strive hard to make sure Maths is a well-loved subject and that all members of Bedgrove Junior School speak highly of it.

White Rose Maths have teamed up with TV presenter, teacher and parent Michael Underwood to bring you a mini-series called Maths with Michael. We understand that many parents feel like maths has changed and can sometimes find it difficult to keep up to date with modern teaching methods in maths. Well don’t worry, we’re here to help. With over 80% of Primary schools and a growing number of Secondary schools using our free schemes of learning, supporting resources and assessments, we can help you bridge the gap between school and home.
Episodes will be released each Sunday at 4pm and Wednesday at 7pm for 3 weeks. Episodes will give you an introduction to place value, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions and algebra. If popular and useful for parents and carers we may delve deeper into one of these topics in another mini-series. Now sit back and enjoy!
