Maths Mathematics At Breakwater Academy we will be adopting a mastery approach to Maths. This means that we will encourage our children to develop a deep understanding of each strand of mathematics where they can reason and problem solve as well as solve basic calculations. We will use resources from the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM): https://www.ncetm.org.uk/ Other subject areas are predominately covered by the IPC (International Primary Curriculum) in an integrated manner through topics or themes embracing particular focuses. These are: Computing (ICT), and the foundation subjects of Music. Art, History, Geography, Personal Social and Health Education (PSHE), Design and Technology (D&T), Physical Education (PE) and Religious Education (R.E). Children work in a variety of ways: as a class, in groups, pairs or individually. The emphasis is always on active and meaningful involvement of children in their own learning. All children have regular opportunities to engage in musical and creative activities. In addition, the curriculum has a strong international focus. As such, our Academy has developed numerous links with partner schools and organisations abroad.
