“Pure mathematics is, in its way, the poetry of logical ideas.” – Albert Einstein, German theoretical physicist

Maths Intent

At the heart of our innovative and inclusive Mathematics curriculum is facilitating opportunities for children to develop skills and knowledge which places a focus on perceiving how Maths surrounds their everyday lives. Putting children at the forefront of their learning is paramount to providing a 21st century education, ready for their next steps. Through fluency of fundamental skills, reasoning of key concepts and making connections in problem solving, children are taught to detect patterns, explain their thinking using mathematical vocabulary, think logically and respect others’ approaches when exploring different mathematical concepts. As well as independent work, a range of paired, group and whole class activities allow children to build upon their knowledge and understanding and support others in their learning.

By the time the children reach Year 6, they will have been exposed to high standards of subject-specific vocabulary and will be competent in mathematical oracy. Embedded within our Mathematics provision, which we aim to instil, are core values of resilience, perseverance and determination, key values that are not standalone; they allow children to flourish in real-life situations.
