At Shapla we follow the White Rose planning structure to support Teaching for Mastery. We also follow the Collins Busy Ants online maths scheme, which allows teachers to plan for fluency, reasoning and problem solving.  In addition, teachers use the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Maths (NCETM) materials to strengthen planning and teaching for mastery.  Objectives are taught in blocks so that children have opportunities to learn, consolidate and apply new skills.
