Mathematics is a core subject in the National Curriculum. We want children to develop a love of mathematics and equip them with the skills and confidence them need to solve a range of problems through fluency with numbers and mathematical reasoning. Children are encouraged to see the mathematics that surrounds them every day and enjoy developing vital life skills in this subject.
We deliver maths in a variety of ways. This year we are starting our journey to the mastery teaching approach of mathematics, where every child can succeed and believe they are good at mathematics. We will place an emphasis on developing children's mathematical talk, problem solving and reasoning.
Within every maths lesson children will have opportunities to use a variety of resources to show their maths as well as explaining their answers. Children are encouraged to work with partners to allow in the development of mathematical talk.
By the time children leave our school in Year 2 we want children to have developed a love of mathematics and a secure understanding of the key concepts of calculations and place value.
