The Aims of the Mathematics National Curriculum
The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
AT BROOKFIELD PARK PRIMARY SCHOOL WE WANT OUR PUPILS TO:-
*develop a positive and confident attitude towards mathematics.
* become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time.
*develop conceptual understanding
*develop 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.
* 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.
We implement the EYFS Curriculum (Development Matters) and the Programmes of Study for the National Curriculum in Key Stage One and Two.
