Maths

The National Curriculum: 'Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.' (National Curriculum: 2013)

At St Ann's we strive to ensure our pupils:

  • develop fluency in their mathematical understanding, being able to rapidly recall and apply their knowledge.
  • learn to reason mathematically, using mathematical language, concepts, justification and proof to explain their understanding.
  • can problem solve, through an application of their knowledge and understanding of mathematics to a wide range of concepts.

Children are enthused through an exciting mathematics curriculum, which develops a depth of understanding, encouraging children to explore and explain themselves in a safe environment. This empowers children to master concepts through a range of contexts opposed to moving on to the next thing.

Calculations Policy: We follow our calculations policy for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division to ensure children have a secure basis on which to build.
