We believe that it is vital for all our pupils to to make sense of the patterned and numeric world around them. We aim to provide pupils a secure understanding of number, place value, the 4 operations, fractions, geometry, measure and statistics, to enable them to solve real life problems. We encourage our pupils to ask questions, make relationships between number and approach problem solving in creative ways. Maths is taught throughout the school daily and children are actively encouraged to use and demonstrate their maths skills cross the wider curriculum.
Lessons are carefully crafted in order to foster deep conceptual and procedural knowledge. Whole class discussions and precise questioning during lessons ensures that pupils develop fluent technical proficiency and think deeply about the underpinning mathematical concepts. A variety of concrete and pictorial representations are used to introduce and explore a concept effectively.
