Maths Intent Statement:
In maths, our aim is for all children to master the basic skills through practise, practise, practise. We intend for maths to be seen as achievable for all children (including those with different learning styles). We do this by giving the children concrete, pictorial and abstract methods to achieve this. We will provide a range of fluency, reasoning and problem solving activities for children to apply and deepen their understanding of these basic skills. This will enable the children to develop a positive attitude towards maths and to develop the resilience and confidence needed for them to work independently. Through developing positive attitudes and securing basic skills, our aim is for children to be secure and ready for the next phase in their education.
“The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated but to make complicated things simple.”
Aims and Objectives:
In Maths at Smawthorne, we will help all children acquire the skills and understanding necessary to use Maths in their everyday lives.
The maths curriculum will offer experiences which will enable our children to develop their own understanding of Maths. Skills will be taught in context to provide purpose and to make Maths practical and enjoyable.
This will enable the children to develop a positive attitude towards maths and to develop the resilience and confidence needed for them to work independently.
