We aim to produce confident mathematicians who can use and apply their knowledge and understanding in a variety of contexts. We endeavour to provide children with a diverse range of opportunities to use their maths skills across the curriculum. Children are encouraged to take risks and to face challenges and problems with a positive approach.
Maths includes many areas including the number system, measures, shape, problem solving and handling data and these are covered throughout each year following the 2014 National Curriculum. It is taught daily and includes oral, mental and written work with an emphasis on using appropriate mathematical vocabulary.
A variety of approaches are used and children are encouraged to make their own choices with regards to resources needed and level of challenge. We ensure that the curriculum is tailored to meet the needs of each child while developing their skills and understanding at an appropriate level.
We use a spiral curriculum which means that all key concepts are regularly returned to, reviewed and developed over the course of each academic year.
