Mathematics is a key skill and core subject that all children need to feel confident with, through developing their ability to calculate, reason and solve problems. It is used in daily life and helps us to make sense of the world around us. Mathematics can be taught cross-curricular but is also taught discreetly in all classes each week. Basic skills are also integral to our drive to further our children’s learning in mathematics and thus, timetabled throughout the week.
The 2014 National Curriculum for Maths aims to ensure that all children:
Become fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics
Are able to reason mathematically
Can solve problems by applying their Mathematics.
At Rudston Primary School, these skills are embedded within challenging Maths lessons and developed consistently over time. We are committed to ensuring that children are able to recognise the importance of Maths in the wider world, becoming resilient in their approach and that they are also able to contextualise their mathematical skills and knowledge. We want all children to respect and enjoy Mathematics and to experience success in the subject, with the ability to reason mathematically. We are committed to developing children’s curiosity about the subject, as well as an appreciation of the beauty and power of Mathematics.
