The Aims of the Mathematics National Curriculum
The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
- reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
- can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions
AT BROOKFIELD PARK PRIMARY SCHOOL WE INTEND TO:-
- Empower children to have a confident and resilient attitude towards Mathematics.
- Enable children to talk enthusiastically about Mathematics and understand the importance of the subject in everyday life.
- Provide children with opportunities to develop effective thinking and explanation skills to prepare them for the future.
- Encourage children to be inquisitive learners who can successfully work individually and in collaboration with others.
- Enable children to persevere and solve challenging problems applying skills of both fluency and reasoning.
We implement the EYFS Framewor and the Programmes of Study for the National Curriculum in Key Stage One and Two.
