  • Children are supported in their learning by a range of practical and pictorial strategies, to develop their logical thinking and reasoning skills.
  • Children are encouraged to develop a natural curiosity and an investigative approach.
  • Children learn problem solving skills so that they can apply their mathematics to a variety of situations.
  • Children are given the opportunity to develop their maths skills across the curriculum and are encouraged to use a wide variety of accurate mathematical vocabulary and language.

How do our values shine through in Maths?

Respect

Children consider and trust their approaches when answering mathematical questions. They respect that their peers may use different approaches than themselves.

Compassion

Children can articulate their own success but recognise that it is important to offer support and compassion to those who need it.

Courage

Children are courageous in taking risks in their maths work. They show a confidence and self-belief in their own thought processes and answers.

Perseverance

Children persevere in the face of challenge and appreciate that making mistakes in their maths work is an opportunity to learn.
