Maths

Intent, Implementation and Impact

Intent

  • To develop confidence, enjoyment ad resilience in maths.
  • To develop fluency and understanding of number, shape, quantity and relationships.
  • To develop an understanding of maths as a tool for everyday tasks.
  • To develop skills in applying mathematical concepts and processes to solve problems.
  • To develop understanding of computational concepts and processes.
  • To develop reasoning skills to enable children to explain their mathematical understanding.

Implementation

  • To ensure full coverage of the maths curriculum we use the White Rose Maths scheme of work throughout the school.
  • The school has well-planned sequences of learning which support and develop children's mathematical skills.
  • Maths lessons incorporate opportunities for fluency, reasoning and problem solving.
  • All lessons are planed to include challenge and support appropriate for the needs of the children.
  • Concrete and pictorial representations are used to support understanding of mathematical concepts.
  • Formative assessment takes place during lessons in order to tackle misconceptions and to inform weekly planning.
  • Summative assessment takes place twice per year.

Impact

  • The vast majority of children meet end of year and end of key stage expectations.
  • Children are independently able to apply their mathematical skills to increasingly complex and real problems.
  • Children are able to tackle reasoning and problem solving with increased confidence, fluency and enjoyment.
  • Children apply their mathematical knowledge and understanding to other areas of the curriculum.
