In Maths we aim to enrich the children's love and passion for Maths by providing a stimulating maths curriculum following the Herts for Learning scheme of work PA+. It is based on the Primary Framework for Maths. The children are challenged as they learn to become fluent, reason and problem solve with maths ideas and processes.
To achieve this 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 and to reason and explain their mathematical thinking.
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.
To support this we have maths targets across the school so children can reach goals step by step and make progress. We used maths resources daily in every lesson and ensure that the children have access to practical learning whenever possible, including the outdoor learning environment.
To inspire we plan fun and interactive lessons and use theme days such a detective day to raise the profile and love for maths.
