Maths

                                        

 

I am Mrs McCarthy and I am fortunate enough to lead maths within our school. 

 

At St Paul's C of E School we follow Herts for Learning scheme of work PA+ based on the Primary Framework for Maths. Pupils develop their understanding of number, shape, measure and data handling. Emphasis is placed on mental maths skills and recall of number facts and patterns. Pupils are encouraged to apply their mathematical knowledge to problem solving and investigation.

We want to enable pupils to see that Mathematics can be a way of viewing and making sense of the world and to be able to think logically, use Mathematical language with confidence and to enjoy investigating, solving and developing their own methods for calculation.

 

Every pupil should be given the opportunity to think about and solve problems mathematically by using appropriate knowledge, skills, concepts and understanding. As a school we follow the National curriculum which aims to ensure that all pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils have conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately to problems
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

This year we are going to be introducing some real competition within maths which will also help everyone to learn their times tables. We are going to be Rock Stars!
