Intent, Implementation and Impact
- Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics.
- Develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly.
- To reason and problem solve by applying mathematics to a variety of increasingly complex problems.
- To build upon children’s knowledge and understanding from year 1 to year 6.
- To develop resilience that enables all children to reason and problem solve with increased confidence.
- To ensure full topic coverage, the school uses ‘Focus Maths’. This is a whole-school primary maths curriculum that creates continuity and progression in the teaching of mathematics.
- Daily maths lessons include fluency, reasoning and problem solving.
- Lessons are differentiated to ensure there is appropriate challenge for all learners.
- Concrete manipulatives and pictorial representations are used to support conceptual understanding and to make links across topics.
- Children are individually assessed and rewarded for rapid recall of number bonds (KS1) and times tables (Years 2-6).
- Children complete a weekly pre and post learning task on each topic to ensure progress is being made through their maths journey,
- Children are assessed on a termly basis.
- Most children reach end of year expectations.
- Children’s progress is tracked on a weekly basis using a tracker.
- Well planned sequences of learning support children to develop and refine their maths skills.
- Children are able to independently apply their knowledge to a range of increasingly complex problems.
- Children are reasoning with increased confidence and accuracy. .
