We aim to provide the pupils with a mathematics curriculum which will produce individuals who are literate, creative, independent, inquisitive, enquiring and confident. We also aim to provide a stimulating environment and enriching resources so that pupils can develop their mathematics skills to their full potential.
In mathematics, our pupils should:
- Have a sense of a number and where it fits into the number system
- Know by heart number facts such as number bonds, multiplication tables, doubles and halves
- Use what they know by heart to calculate mentally
- Calculate accurately using efficient written methods (see the school's calculation policy for further details)
- Have coherent strategies for solving word problems
- Explain their methods and reasoning using the correct mathematical vocabulary
- Suggest suitable units for measuring and make sensible estimations of measures
- Explain the information which is presented in graphs, tables, charts and any other diagrams
- Develop spatial awareness and an understanding of the properties of 2D and 3D shapes
