A scheme of learning is a clear, time-linked plan for learning.
Our schemes are written for year groups and cover the whole school year of learning. It’s likely your child’s school already follows the White Rose Maths schemes. To find out, check the school website or ask their teacher.
Even if the school is not currently using our schemes, don’t worry, you can still use our videos and materials to help your child to learn and enjoy maths at home.
You can view and download our schemes of learning and learning videos completely free of charge on the home learning section of our website.
For each year group, the scheme of learning includes an overview of the maths that your child should be learning at any point in the year.
Each year is split into three terms (autumn, spring and summer), and each term comprises individual blocks of learning about a particular topic. So the Year 4 overview looks like the picture, and Autumn Block 2, for example, focuses on addition and subtraction.
You’ll notice that we spend lots of time building strong number skills in Key Stage 1, Key Stage 2 and early secondary years. These essential core skills lay a solid foundation for more complicated learning later on.
Sometimes schools might be a little behind or ahead of the scheme schedule. That’s fine; we deliberately build flexibility into our schemes to allow for these variations.
We’ve divided each block of knowledge into a series of small learning steps. Together, these small steps cover all the curriculum content that your child needs to know.
Brain science tells us that your child will remember more by learning maths in small, related chunks. We also used the best available research to map out the crucial learning steps that will help your child to understand what they are learning clearly.
Many people think they “can’t do maths”, but with exciting new teaching approaches, we’re proving day by day that every child really can love and succeed in maths! What’s more, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to support your child’s learning, so here are some helpful tips from our fantastic team.
Remember that understanding each small step is the path to your child’s success: rushing ahead doesn’t work!
Try looking instead at work on the same topics from earlier in the year or previous years. Doing this will help plug any learning gaps and make sure your child understands the topic more clearly.
Fully aligned to the White Rose Maths schemes of learning, these homework books allow students the time to practise and embed understanding of that week’s key concepts, encouraging a home-school link.
Why not have a go at some of our problem-solving activities or bar modelling problems? These are great exercises for stretching young minds and building new skills and insights!
Our fantastic teachers have produced home learning videos for every single small step. So if your child needs to work at home or catch up, these videos are fun, practical and super-easy to use!
For each learning block, we produce a set of questions for your child to solve. You can download and print these questions by purchasing a subscription or a printed workbook format from our online shop.
Each workbook covers one block of learning, so the size of the workbook depends on the length of the block.
Both the subscription and the workbooks are available at a very low cost.
We hope that our schemes, videos and other resources will be really helpful for you and your family.
