Maths

‘Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.’-Albert Einstein

 

Purpose of study 

We are committed to ensuring that children are able to recognise the importance of Maths in the wider world and that they are also able to use their mathematical skills and knowledge confidently in their lives in a range of different contexts. We want all children to enjoy Mathematics and to experience success in the subject, with the ability to reason mathematically. We are committed to developing children’s curiosity about the subject, as well as an appreciation of the beauty and power of Mathematics. We aim to deliver lessons that are creative and engaging. We want children to make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. We intend for our pupils to be able to apply their mathematical knowledge to everyday life and across other curriculum subjects, recognising that these skills are essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment.

 

Aims 

Our curriculum aims to ensure that all pupils: 

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics.
  • Are able to reason mathematically.
  • Can solve problems by applying their Mathematical knowledge and understanding.

Organisation

  • Maths is promoted daily to inspire and motivate children so that they see themselves as ‘mathematicians.’
  • Planning follows a bespoke, phase specific, Maths Overview. In EYFS and Year 6 there is flexibility within the overview to ensure the children’s understanding of mathematics is embedded in real life and familiar contexts. In Year 6 maths opportunities are maximised to ensure knowledge gaps are revised and reinforced. Years 1 -5 follow the Maths No Problem teaching programme.
  • A personalised, progressive, teaching sequence is applied to each unit of study. This is based on techniques of best practice and Quality First Teaching methods that have proved successful in upper Key Stage 2.
  • Teachers carefully plan open ended, challenging questions which enable our children to make connections, identify patterns and draw conclusions about Mathematical concepts and problem solving.  Misconceptions are addressed as they arise and teachers actively engage children in proving their ideas.
  • During each lesson all children use apparatus as visual aids, as they make progress in the lesson they move towards using pictorial and abstract representations for Mathematical concepts. We focus on making progress from description to evaluation.
