At London Colney Primary and Nursery School, we provide opportunities for all children to make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop their fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills; our aim is that all learners are equipped with the knowledge to solve ever more challenging mathematical problems.
We promote a curriculum which is accessible to all and will maximise the development of every child’s ability. We believe all children can achieve in maths and teach for secure and deep understanding of mathematical concepts and procedures through manageable steps within learning journeys. We value robust assessment for learning to identify gaps and misconceptions. Challenge is embedded through tasks that develop fluency, problem-solving and reasoning skills, and are adapted to children’s needs to ensure our maths curriculum is aspirational to all children.
Across year groups, children build their understanding through mathematical resources and pictorial representations. With these foundations embedded, children move on to an abstract approach using symbols, numbers and key concepts. Our aim is that by the end of Key Stage 2, all children will be able to use an efficient written method for each operation with confidence, accuracy and with understanding to apply their knowledge to a range of problem solving and reasoning contexts.
Through our maths curriculum, we want all children to enjoy maths and to experience success in the subject, with the confidence to reason and problem solve mathematically in a range of contexts.
