At St. Mary’s We are committed to raising standards within Numeracy working closely with the Maths consultants. We follow the National Curriculum programmes of study and focus upon ensuring that the teaching of Mathematics enables 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 solutions.
We use the White Rose Maths Resources to help support us with planning, teaching and assessing Mathematics.Programme of Study - Mathematics St Mary's Progression Document - Mathemetics
