Purpose and Aims
The maths curriculum provides children with a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject. Through varied and increasingly complex problems, children learn that mathematics is a creative and inter-connected discipline that encourages enquiry, depth of thought and perseverance.
As mathematicians, pupils at the end of key stage two will be able to:
- Work fluently and accurately with the fundamentals of mathematics.
- Reason mathematically to develop a coherent justification of their ideas using relevant mathematical language.
- Solve problems with increasing levels of sophistication by breaking them down into a series of simpler steps.
- Approach unfamiliar concepts with a positive mindset, determination and the confidence to learn from mistakes.
