Maths at Scunthorpe Church of England Primary

Why we teach Maths as we do: 

At Scunthorpe C of E maths is considered to be a journey, achieved through exploration, clarification, practice and application over time. At each stage of learning, children should be able to demonstrate a deep, conceptual understanding of the topic and be able to build on this over time. 

We intend to do this by:  

· Ensuring our children have a high quality maths curriculum that is both challenging and enjoyable delivered to the whole class. Misconceptions and potential barriers are speedily identified and addressed and where necessary interventions happen the same day.  

Opportunities for the application of maths are clearly planned for in fortnightly maths /geography or history or science lessons.  

.Providing our children with a variety of mathematical opportunities, which will enable them to make the connections in learning, needed to enjoy a greater depth in learning.  

· Ensuring children are confident mathematicians who are not afraid to take risks.  

· Fully develop independent learners with inquisitive minds who have secure mathematical foundations and an interest in self-improvement  

We aim for all pupils to:  

  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics so that they develop a conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.  

  • Be able to solve problems and reason mathematically by applying what they know.
