We aim to provide our children with a wide mathematical education taught in an enjoyable, relevant and creative way. We use ‘real life&rsquo experiences so children begin to understand the importance of applying maths skills in order to solve problems and engage them for future learning.
Maths is taught daily based on the Renewed National Numeracy Strategy. Children move through the Key Stage building on existing skills and developing their knowledge and understanding. Pupils explore all four number operations and are encouraged to try different strategies that best suit their learning. Pupils explore shape and space and develop their measuring skills in a range of contexts. They are given lots of opportunities to discuss their methods and encouraged to use the appropriate mathematical vocabulary.
We want our children to know and understand mathematical concepts, skills, facts, relationships and strategies and be able to apply and communicate these in a confident way.
