At Wolverley Sebright Primary Academy we believe that a quality maths curriculum must be accessible to all and should enable children to: become fluent in the fundamentals of maths; reason mathematically; and solve problems by applying their maths. These skills are embedded into our maths curriculum and developed consistently over time.
We want to ignite curiosity, inspiring children to make rich connections that they use across other areas of the curriculum, seeing the importance of maths in the wider world and their future adult life.
To become a great mathematician we need:
Motivation Perseverance A rich mathematical vocabulary
Connections Fluency Written calculations
Mental calculations Concentration Independent thought
Recall of number facts Ambition Stamina
To learn from mistakes Initiative Patience
Progression and Skills
At Wolverley we use a mastery approach to teaching maths.
The national curriculum outlines the knowledge and skills to be taught in each year group and can be seen in the document below.
