Through our teaching of mathematics we want all pupils to:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
- reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
- solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solution
We achieve this through superb lessons as well as specifically tailored interventions to match individual needs.
Some of the interventions we currently run are:
- First Class at Number
- Talk for Number
- Success at Arithmetic
- Pixl Maths
- My Maths
Formal Written Methods of Calculating
Formal written methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division are first taught in Year 3 and developed throughout KS2.
Here are some worked examples:
