We aim to provide a variety of experiences that will encourage the children to reach their full mathematical potential by developing a positive and confident attitude towards maths.

Through working together, children learn to co-operate and listen to others ideas and opinions. Ancient number systems, those from other cultures and the adaptation of own number systems offer a cultural dimension.

The aims of the National Curriculum for maths are to ensure that children:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • 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.
