Mathematics

Teaching of mathematics follows the National Curriculum for England (2014), supported by a wide range of resources. We recognise the importance of practical activities, problem solving and investigational work. Lessons are planned to provide a balance between direct teaching, pupils working in groups and are given time to review their learning. Teachers enhance mathematical understanding across the curriculum. For example: links with computing to create databases, graphs in science and to measure accurately in design and technology.  Teaching techniques reflect the needs of the pupils and may vary between learning groups where entry points to key methods may come later.

 Provision in the curriculum will enable pupils to:-
  • Count and calculate in increasingly complex contexts, including those that cannot be experienced first hand
  • Rigorously apply mathematical knowledge across the curriculum, in particular in science, technology and computing
  • Deepen conceptual understanding of mathematics by frequent repetition and extension of key concepts in a range of engaging and purposeful contexts
  • Explore numbers and place value so as to read and understand the value of all numbers
  • Add and subtract using efficient mental and formal written methods
  • Multiply and divide using efficient mental and formal written methods
  • Use the properties of shapes and angles in increasingly complex and practical contexts, including in construction and engineering contexts
  • Describe position, direction and movement in increasingly precise ways
  • Use and apply measures to increasingly complex contexts
  • Gather, organise and interrogate data
  • Understand the practical value of using algebra
