“A high-quality Maths education provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of Maths, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.”
The National Curriculum for Maths aims to ensure that all pupils:
• Become fluent in the fundamentals of Maths;
• Reason mathematically;
• Can solve problems by applying their Maths.
(National Curriculum 2014)
Our intent is:
1. To help each pupil develop as far as possible the knowledge, skills and understanding in mathematics, that will be required in further study and adult life.
2. To engender a fascination with the subject and give all children the confidence to use their mathematical knowledge and understanding with fluency, accuracy, reasoning and problem solving.
1. To enjoy mathematics and to be stimulated and motivated by moments of pleasure and wonder.
2. To encourage the selection and use of mathematical vocabulary and resources with confidence.
3. To develop appropriate written and mental strategies to solve mathematical problems.
4. To reason and problem solve logically and to develop the ability to think in abstract ways.
5. To use and apply mathematics in practical tasks, real life problems and within mathematics itself.
6. To work with increasing independence on extended mathematical tasks but also have the opportunity to work as part of a group.
