Maths at Hadlow Primary School
At Hadlow Primary, we recognise that Mathematics is essential to everyday life and we aim to provide a high quality mathematics education with a mastery approach so that all children:
• become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics.
• reason mathematically.
• can solve problems by applying their mathematics. (National Curriculum 2014)
We intend on delivering a curriculum which, recognises that mathematics underpins much of our daily lives and therefore is of paramount importance to ensure that children are inspired and become successful in the next stages of their learning. We deliver a curriculum which, allows children to be a part of creative and engaging lessons that will give them a range of opportunities to explore mathematics following a mastery approach. We want to give each pupil a chance to believe in themselves as mathematicians and develop the power of resilience, when faced with mathematical challenges. We intend to ensure that all children are exposed to high quality teaching and learning opportunities, striving to achieve their potential. We make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly challenging problems. We want to provide equal opportunities for children to apply their mathematical knowledge to other subjects (cross-curricular links). We intend to enable children to develop a passion for mathematics and celebrate maths in all areas of life, from home life to outdoor learning. By providing children with opportunities to become fluent using accurate mathematical vocabulary, children will read, write and talk like a mathematicians.
