Within our school we acknowledge the importance of Mathematics as a core subject of the National Curriculum and as a key area of knowledge for all pupils.
The New Curriculum for Mathematics consists of a set of teaching programmes or programmes of study summarising teaching objectives for each year group from Year 1 to Year 6. Children in Reception follow the New Framework introduced in September 2012.
The New National Curriculum for Mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
* 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
* Can 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 solutions
The New Curriculum for Years 1, 2, 3 and 4 includes: Number, Measurements, Geometry and Statistics
The New Curriculum for Years 5 and 6 includes: Number, Ratio and Proportion, Measurements, Geometry and Statistics.
Our Maths curriculum is organised such that pupils will be required to make connections across this subject as well as other subject areas in order to develop fluency, reasoning and competence in solving increasingly complex problems in a wide range of contexts.
