Children often  enjoy matching amounts and spotting things which are the same. Adults could  provide patterns of numbers which are doubles, e.g. on dice, dominoes, egg boxes etc.

Encouraging mathematical thinking and reasoning:

The Mathematical Journey

Same and different:

• describing 'doubles' patterns e.g. "There are five here and five here"
• discussing what is the same and different about domino and array patterns

Counting and cardinality:

• counting to check the same number has been added when doubling

Matching numerals and amounts:

• matching numerals to patterns, or patterns to a number line
• adding on the same number again to double
• 'counting all' to find the total
• 'counting on' from the first number to find the total
• predicting how many there will be before doubling a number

Multiplying:

• talking about six being 'two threes' rather than 'three and three'
• talking about 'doubling three' to get six

• Toy animals for the 'double trouble' story.
• 'Doubles' images: dice, dominoes, Numicon, multilink in two-column arrays, egg boxes.
• Counters and pegboards to make up doubles patterns.
• Stamps or sticky circles to record patterns.

## Year One White Rose Supporting Resources

Supporting white rose maths hub.

Welcome to our Supporting White Rose Maths hub! Discover fun, engaging and teacher-approved resources that perfectly align with the White Rose Maths framework and the maths mastery approach.

Ever since White Rose Maths set out on their mission to help every child master maths, the organisation has taken the world of primary education by storm. Through resources, Schemes of Learning and yearly frameworks detailing small steps to progression, White Rose Maths has been helping teachers and parents turn children into confident young mathematicians. At the heart of White Rose Maths is  maths mastery , an approach that’s sparked a positive,  growth mindset  towards mathematics in teachers, parents and pupils.

Here at Master the Curriculum, we’re thrilled to see so many primary school teachers and parents using White Rose Maths to enhance their lessons and get children engaged and excited about maths. Whether you’re using White Rose Maths resources, following the Schemes of Learning and the small steps to progression and/or taking a mastery approach to mathematics, White Rose Maths can transform children’s learning experience and attitude towards numeracy.

That’s why we offer resources aligned with the White Rose Maths framework and the National Curriculum. Each of our resources is designed to help children work towards maths mastery and have fun while doing so — because enjoyment can make a world of difference to children’s engagement with education.

## Year 1 Version 3.0 White Rose Maths Resources

Year 1 version 2.0 white rose maths resources, using white rose maths to help children master maths.

The White Rose Maths mastery approach has seen tremendous success in schools all over the UK, helping children learn with a can-do attitude and embrace maths challenges with a smile. Lessons and resources influenced by White Rose focus on three concepts that help children work towards mastery.

## Problem Solving

Through problem-solving lessons and activities, children are encouraged to use their mathematical skills and understanding to solve problems unfamiliar to them.

Maths reasoning tasks get children thinking about number problems logically so they can reach conclusions, find solutions and decide which methods to use and why.

Fluency tasks help children strengthen their foundational knowledge. They practise applying their skills and understanding to different number problems with varying contexts and levels of complexity, while independently choosing the method they use to tackle number problems successfully. Fluency brings together problem-solving and reasoning.

## Discover Resources That Follow the White Rose Maths Small Steps to Progression

Maths mastery is a journey and to help youngsters on their way, so White Rose Maths has created “Small Steps to Progression”. These small steps break down which learning objectives children need to master, and in what order, to gain a deep understanding of maths topics, and gradually develop their reasoning and problem-solving skills.

There are small steps for each year group, sorted into blocks of weeks. For example, block one for Year 1 covers what children should learn between weeks one to three of the Autumn term. By following these steps, you can make sure children gain all of the foundational skills and knowledge they need to progress onto more complex and challenging lessons.

To help you work through the small steps with your class or with your child, we offer weekly resources that align with them. When you browse our maths resources by year group, you’ll find weekly packs of worksheets, teaching slides and lesson plans. These packs make it easy for you to follow the White Rose steps, save time on lesson planning and find resources that perfectly match your lessons and where children are in terms of progress.

## Why Use Our White Rose Style Resources?

Designed with Mastery in Mind — We offer a huge range of primary maths resources that combine fluency, reasoning and problem-solving activities to help children on their journey to maths mastery.

Follow Clear Learning Objectives  — Each one of our resources is designed to help children meet learning objectives that align with the White Rose Small Steps. You’ll have peace of mind knowing our resources suit your lessons perfectly and will help children build on their maths skills and understanding.

Assess Children’s Progress — We offer assessments and mini-assessments to help you check children have a firm understanding of the steps you’ve already covered. This way, you can make sure your class is ready to move on to more advance lessons.

Fun and Engaging Resources  — Fun is at the heart of our White Rose style resources. Our learning materials engage children in maths and get them excited about learning with fun visual imagery, creative contexts and imaginative maths problems.

Explore Topics in Depth with Differentiated Resources  — Our resources are differentiated by complexity so children can explore topics in-depth and improve their fluency.

## The Benefits of White Rose Maths for Schools: Transforming Lessons with a Mastery Approach

Help all children master maths at a similar pace.

White Rose inspired lessons meet the needs of all children and focus on helping them keep up, not catch up. The small steps for progression make sure all pupils master the same learning objectives and progress at a similar pace. No children should fall behind, and none should speed through content ahead of their classmates. Instead, children of all levels of attainment get the support they need to grasp topics and explore concepts in depth. Only once the whole class has a good understanding of one learning objective do teachers move onto more advanced lessons.

## Build Children’s Confidence and Competence in Maths

Every teacher wants to see their class excel in all subjects and White Rose Maths resources and frameworks can help whole classes work towards maths mastery. A big part of the mastery approach is teaching children to adopt a growth mindset. Maths lessons should show pupils that anyone can become a master of maths if they put in the effort and get the support they need to succeed.

When children stop believing that they can’t do maths and adopt a more positive, proactive attitude to this subject, that’s when they can reach their full mathematical potential. They’re likely to feel more confident and engaged in lessons, and the more they embrace maths challenges, the easier it will be for them to develop skills and understanding.

## Streamline Lesson Preparation

White Rose Maths takes a weight off your shoulders when it comes to lesson planning. With Schemes of Learning, yearly frameworks and detailed small steps to progression, you won’t have to worry about planning what to cover in lessons each day, week, month and term.

The clear learning objectives outlined in the small steps to progression also make it easy for you to find resources to complement lessons and help children progress.

## Enhance Your Maths Lessons with White Rose Maths Resources

Explore our primary maths resources by year group and discover a wide range of resources that support White Rose learning and the small steps to progression. Enhance your lessons, make learning fun and teach for mastery with maths worksheets, teaching slides, lesson plans, reasoning booklets and more.

## White Rose Maths for Parents: Get Children Engaged in Learning at Home

The White Rose approach isn’t just for teachers to use in the classroom. You can also use  White Rose Maths in your home learning  to help your little one improve their confidence in mathematics. Practice makes perfect, and if your children are learning at home as well as at school, they’ll have a chance to delve deep into maths topics and develop a firmer understanding of the lessons covered in school. This knowledge and understanding can pave the way for more advanced maths.

White Rose Maths also makes it easier for you to support your child with their home learning tasks. As a busy parent, you don’t want to spend time trying to figure out exactly what children are learning at school, and you don’t have the time to learn topics for yourself so you can guide your child through it. You can use the White Rose Maths  small steps  as a schedule for your home learning sessions and you can find endless White Rose resources right here on the Master the Curriculum website. As homework will often be fluency or consolidation tasks, you won’t have to guide your child through number problems.

## What specific problem are you solving?

India, the largest democracy in the world, faces the issue of financial illiteracy. When it comes to money matters, what you don’t know can hurt you a lot. India is predicted to be the fastest-growing economy for the next decade. In a country like this, a whopping 83.3% of the population is not financially literate. Alternatively in one other survey, 83% of the American population feels that schools should teach high school students Financial Literacy Coursework.

The Finance Minister of India recently stated that Financial Literacy should be taught at the school level. If we don’t teach people financial literacy, they will not suddenly stop interacting with money. They’ll do it themselves, and the vast majority will lose money. Instead of applying financial reasoning, we’ll apply the logic from Reddit; instead of technical analysis, we’ll analyze tweets of financial influencers. We’ll invest in crypto because of a star-studded FTX Superbowl commercial, and the cost of financial illiteracy will rise. 32% of teens still don’t know the difference between a credit card and a debit card and 11% of Americans with bank accounts paid overdraft fees in 2021. Think of the 2008 financial crisis when people couldn’t engage in appropriate mortgages  — that had consequences beyond personal finances.

Several instances underscore the negative consequences of the public's poor financial choices, stemming from a lack of financial literacy. For example, a game show winner lost INR 50 million (\$600,000) due to mismanagement, an educated individual faced financial distress and took their life after accruing debt from a loan and stock market losses, and an actor resorted to menial jobs after depleting savings from unemployment. These cases emphasize the crucial need for financial education, which is currently absent from our curriculum.

Financial literacy has devolved into a massive, generational game of telephone; if children don’t learn about budgeting, saving, credit, and investing from their parents, they never do. Financial literacy has become a double-edged sword for generational wealth: it benefits those with it and disproportionately hurts those without it.

In summary, financial illiteracy in India poses significant risks, with a vast majority lacking crucial financial knowledge. Addressing this issue through education is paramount to avoid costly mistakes and empower individuals for better financial decision-making, ensuring a more secure future. Ultimately, promoting financial literacy is not just about money—it's about building resilience and prosperity for generations to come.

In today's fast-paced, digital world, the youth of our generation are spending more time than ever before glued to their electronic devices, often mindlessly scrolling and gaming. As concerned parents and educators, we recognize a critical gap in the current education system - the lack of comprehensive financial literacy training for young people. This oversight leaves our future leaders ill-equipped to navigate the complexities of personal finance, a skill set essential for thriving in the modern economy.

Our solution aims to bridge this gap by revolutionizing the way financial education is delivered. We are developing an interactive, game-based platform that seamlessly integrates core financial concepts into an engaging, immersive learning experience. By leveraging the power of technology and the universal appeal of gaming, we will captivate students and transform the way they approach personal finance.

Through our platform, students will have the opportunity to explore real-life financial scenarios, practice essential skills like budgeting and tax filing, and gain hands-on experience with fundamental financial statements. The interactive nature of the game-based curriculum will not only make learning enjoyable but also ensure that the knowledge sticks, empowering the next generation to make informed, responsible financial decisions.

To maximize the reach and impact of our solution, we will be partnering with high schools across the country to incorporate our platform directly into the curriculum. This strategic approach will guarantee that every student has access to comprehensive financial education, laying a solid foundation for their future success.

Our vision is to create a generation of financially literate, empowered young adults who are equipped to navigate the complexities of personal finance with confidence. By transforming the way financial education is delivered, we believe we can unlock the tremendous potential of our youth and pave the way for a more financially secure and prosperous future.

## Who does your solution serve, and in what ways will the solution impact their lives?

Today's young people are poised to become the next generation of leaders, innovators, and change-makers. However, they often lack the essential financial literacy skills needed to navigate the complexities of the modern economy. Traditional education systems have largely overlooked the importance of personal finance, leaving students ill-equipped to handle crucial life decisions around budgeting, saving, investing, and managing debt.

The Current Challenges:

• Vulnerability to debt traps, missed opportunities, and financial scams
• Limited understanding of fundamental financial concepts and their real-world applications

The Solution's Transformative Impact: Our interactive, game-based financial education platform directly addresses the needs of this underserved population. By embedding comprehensive financial literacy training into an engaging, immersive learning experience, we empower high school students to:

• Develop a deep understanding of personal finance principles, from budgeting and saving to investing and tax planning
• Apply their knowledge in realistic, simulated scenarios, allowing them to make mistakes and learn from them in a safe environment
• Build confidence in their ability to make informed, responsible financial decisions
• Gain the tools and mindset to achieve their short-term and long-term financial goals

Empowering the Next Generation of Financial Leaders

Through this solution, we envision a future where young adults are not only financially literate but also empowered to take charge of their financial well-being. By cultivating a generation of financially secure, confident individuals, we can break the cycle of debt, missed opportunities, and vulnerability to financial scams.

Imagine a world where young people graduate high school armed with the knowledge and skills to budget effectively, save for their dreams, invest wisely, and navigate the complexities of the financial system. This transformation has the power to unlock the full potential of our youth, enabling them to pursue their aspirations and contribute to a more financially stable and prosperous society.
