An introduction...

The key expectations of our maths curriculum mirrors that of the national curriculum for mathematics. Children who are able to do the following:

1. Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics so that they develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately;

2. Reason mathematically;

3. Solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems.

We want to make maths challenging, active and real to ensure that children are having a positive experience and gain powerful tools for future use.

Our structure

Our Mathematics Primary Curriculum is structured as a 6-year Programme of Study. The curriculum is built from the National Curriculum for mathematics and supported by an Early Years offer that dovetails in precisely.

The curriculum is built around substantive knowledge mapped into ten strands:

Number: Number & Place Value

Number: Addition & Subtraction

Number: Multiplication & Division

Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Measurement

Geometry: Properties of Shapes

Geometry: Position and Direction

Statistics

Algebra

Ratio and Proportion

The content of our curriculum for each year group is broken down into 15 annual units, which develop specific mathematical behaviours.

Detailed schemes of learning and teaching resources are provided to support teachers in:

1) securing the relevant prior knowledge

2) teaching new skills and knowledge to develop strong, conceptual understanding

3) challenging children to develop fluency with the familiar and ultimately the unfamiliar
