In order to be a positive, confident individual in today’s world, our intent in mathematics is to enable children to develop a deep, secure, long-lasting understanding of all the concepts contained in the National Curriculum, and to be able to draw upon this understanding to making connections and solve problems. The skills developed within mathematics, should go beyond the individual subject and impact our children’s lives.
Within this, we intend for children to become confident using a range of mathematical skills including but not limited to the following:
•Using a range of tools to calculate accurately both mentally and using formal operations
•calculating using all four operations (including those involving money)
•Calculating using fractions
•understanding measurement in a range of contexts including telling the time, (including interpreting calendars, timetables etc)
•interpreting and presenting information in tables, graphs and many, many more.
It is our intent to ensure that children develop many key skills to enable them to to face life’s challenges and thrive in their lives, providing them with the best opportunities to reach their full potential.
