By delivering a planned and sequenced mathematics curriculum, we aim to equip our children with efficiency and depth of understanding that allows them to use and apply their mathematical knowledge and skills. This will ensure our children are confident mathematicians and develop a love and excitement for the subject that will carry them through into the next stages of their education and beyond.
We aim to increase pupil confidence in maths so they are able to express themselves and their ideas using the language of maths with assurance.
The teaching of mathematics provides opportunities for group work, paired work and whole class teaching enabling pupils to engage in:
- Explanation and reasoning
- The development of mental strategies
- Written methods
- Practical work
- Investigational work
- Problem- solving
- Mathematical discussion
- Consolidation of basic skills and routines.
