Maths is essential to everyday life and critical to science, technology and engineering. We aim for our Maths curriculum to provide a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically and give a sense of curiosity and enjoyment about the subject.
Our aim is to ensure that all children become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, can reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry and develop justification using mathematical language. We also aim for all our children to be able to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems.
Within KS1 we use a variety of resources from ‘Power Maths’, ‘White Rose’, ‘Nrich’ and ‘Abacus’ amongst others. We aim to develop mastery in maths enabling children to acquire a deep understanding of maths concepts, structures and procedures. We believe that every child has the capacity to succeed in maths.
Mathematics Curriculum Statement
Our calculation policies show how children learn different ways to calculate arithmetic questions and demonstrate how we teach in each year group, supporting children to develop a solid understanding of calculations before they move on to the next step in their learning.
Mathematics Skills Progression
A range of vocabulary, that is specific to the different areas of maths, is used to enrich the children's learning.
Below is a document than can be used to support your child's learning and use of vocabulary in the different areas of their maths learning.
