St Ann's CE Primary

Maths

At St Ann's, we want all children to become confident and articulate mathematicians.

We achieve this by ensuring all of our pupils:

  • develop fluency in their mathematical understanding, being able to rapidly recall and apply their knowledge.
  • learn to reason mathematically, using mathematical language  to explain their understanding.
  • can solve problems, through applying their mathematical knowledge in various contexts and using different strategies.

We have an exciting mathematics curriculum and children have access to a range of learning resources to develop a secure depth of understanding.

Please have a look at our calculation policies, which ensure children develop written and mental fluency:

We also believe that ‘knowledge is power’ when it comes to Maths. Children practise their ‘Number Essentials’ and ‘Knowledge Essentials’ to develop confidence and fluency:
