want children to become fluent mathematicians, who can problem solve and reason confidently, in a way that all children can experience success.
To ensure all children have secure knowledge and accuracy when recording number facts.
To help children to have a deep understanding of mathematics.
To enable all children to develop confidence and resilience in Mathematics.
To supply children with the tools to problem solve in Mathematics and in real life.
To provide an environment where it is okay to make mistakes.
To develop children’s mathematical thinking, using practical resources and pictures to support their understanding.
To give children the confidence and vocabulary to explain their ideas clearly.
In both Nursery and Reception, children learn through play and are provided with hands on and real-life experiences to support their mathematical understanding and thinking. The children will explore and gain a deep understanding of number and numerical patterns through a variety of stimulating multi-sensory and practical experiences to support and inspire all learners. In doing so, we allow the children to develop their understanding and apply their knowledge to real life situations.
We provide opportunities for daily learning both indoor and outdoor, exposing the children to maths in a range of different situations. This offers children the opportunity to explore, problem solve and reason, all while having fun using this hands-on approach to embed their fluency and mathematical understanding.
In Key Stage 2, children build on their work from Key Stage 1 to further improve their ability to tackle complex and varied problems. Through regular practice, our children become fluent with the four operations and arithmetic and, in turn, are able to apply what they have learnt to reason, make connections and solve problems. We instil a strong work ethic within our pupils and ensure that they build resilience as the challenges of more complex mathematics present themselves. Children experience mathematics both inside and outside of the classroom. We hold regular meetings with individual pupils so we can provide clear feedback with how to improve. We strongly believe all pupils can experience success in mathematics and aim to give them the tools to become lifelong mathematicians for the next phase of their education by the end of Key Stage 2.
