The curriculum is organised into the following areas:

 

Using and applying mathematics

  • Solving Problems
  • Communicating
  • Reasoning

 

Number and Calculation:

  • Number and Place Value
  • Addition and Subtraction
  • Multiplication and Division
  • Fractions (including decimals and percentages)
  • Ratio and proportion
  • Algebra

 

Shape, Space and Measure

  • Shape: Properties of Shape
  • Space: Position and Direction
  • Measurement

 

Statistics

 

As well as a daily mathematics lesson, children undertake basic skills work for an additional 15 minutes every day, focusing on the acquisition of key skills, such as multiplication tables and converting units of measurement.

 

Through the teaching of mathematics it is intended that each child will:

 

·         Realise and develop their mathematical potential.

·         Enjoy mathematics for its own sake and develop an interest in investigation.

·         Be able to think clearly and logically and communicate thought using appropriate mathematical language.

·         Gain an understanding of mathematics through the processes of enquiry and experiment.

·         Show curiosity, question and probe persistently for meaning.

·         Attain mathematical skills and knowledge accompanied by the quick recall of basic facts.

·         Appreciate the creative aspects of maths as well as developing an awareness of mathematics in the environment.

·         Recognise patterns in their work, and make generalisations based on what has been learned earlier.

·         Develop the concepts of number, shape and space.

·         Be able to identify mathematical relationships and patterns.

·         Measure with accuracy using appropriate equipment.

·         Gather and handle data selectively and creatively.

 

 

To achieve our objectives a variety of teaching styles are adopted. As children progress through the school they will encounter a variety of materials, worksheets, books and supportive equipment. Roamers (floor turtles) and computer programmes are available to develop and consolidate mathematical skills.
