In the teaching of mathematics we pride ourselves on learning through understanding and developing children’s curiosity to learn through practical experiences in a real life context.
Mathematics is taught in a meaningful and enjoyable way that links to the world around us and develops an enquiry approached curriculum. Within school children are taught in mixed ability groups through a Mastery Approach. Our curriculum is designed systematically to build, extend and challenge the skills, knowledge and understanding that children have.
Within our school there is a dedicated time to ‘basic skills’ teaching outside of the daily maths lesson. Children work in 'Magic Ten' sessions each day where the focus is upon the key principles of children being ‘numerate’.
Progress that children should make is outlined below in each area of mathematical learning. Some aspects of mathematical learning have central relevance to more than one area of learning and will appear in each area to reflect that pupils should make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems.
