As a core subject, Maths is taught daily in every year group. We focus on developing their mental arithmetic, formal written methods and deeper thinking reasoning skills across number skills, geometry and measurement.
Throughout all of the year groups, physical resources, models and images are used regularly to help children hone their mathematical thinking skills. The effective use of manipulatives can help the children connect ideas and integrate their knowledge so that they gain a deep understanding of mathematical concepts.
Teachers plan sequences of work that enable a spiral curriculum. Learning is built upon step by step, sequence by sequence and year on year. This begins with simple exploration of number and mathematical concepts when children first start school, through to complex formal methods for calculations and problem solving by the time they move onto secondary school.
Our maths curriculum is aspirational and ensures progression and coverage through the primary phase.
