In maths we will support the aims of the National Curriculum by teaching mathematics through a problem solving, fluency and reasoning approach that will develop self-confidence and resilience in children.
In our lessons we will support children to develop mathematical understanding in small and coherent steps using a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach. We will build on and make connections with previous learning, use appropriate mathematical structures and models to support understanding.
We will introduce and reinforce mathematical vocabulary and teach children how to explain how they know in full sentences.
Our children will gain a secure, deep and long-term understanding of mathematical concepts and thinking, be capable of solving deeper and sophisticated problems or if necessary, given time and additional support in order to strengthen their understanding.
