Maths

Curriculum intent

 

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

Curriculum Statements for Maths

Progression and Skills

 

At Wolverley we use a mastery approach to teaching maths.

 

  • Teachers reinforce an expectation that all children are capable of achieving high standards in Mathematics.
  • The large majority of children progress through the curriculum content at the same pace.
  • Practice and consolidation play a central role building fluency and understanding of underlying mathematical concepts.
  • Teachers use precise questioning in class to test conceptual and procedural knowledge.

 

The national curriculum outlines the knowledge and skills to be taught in each year group and can be seen in the document below.
