“Without mathematics, there’s nothing you can do. Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around you is numbers.” Shakuntala Devi
At Lady Katherine Leveson C of E Primary School we want all children to have an enthusiasm and passion for Maths. We aim to do so through practical and engaging lessons that are tailored to meet the needs of all of our learners whilst building on a secure foundation of prior knowledge. Children will be equipped with fundamental Mathematical knowledge required to enable them to become competent mathematicians. They will become proficient in reasoning and solving problems whilst developing a fluency in number and calculation using a variety of different strategies. Children will be encouraged to think deeply, engage in discussion and use appropriate vocabulary to support their ideas and reasoning in all lessons.
- To build and maintain an enthusiasm for Maths through our teaching and planning of mathematical concepts.
- Develop a resilience and perseverance towards mathematical concepts, particularly when problem solving.
- To enable children to confidently reason about their mathematics, ensuring knowledge of a range of suitable mathematical vocabulary.
- To use models, manipulatives and varied representations to develop a deep conceptual understanding alongside procedural fluency.
