Mathematics

Intent
 
At Kenton Bar Primary School, we place a great emphasis on the importance of Maths within our curriculum.  Mathematics introduces children to concepts, skills and thinking strategies that are essential in everyday life and support learning across the curriculum.
 
In our Early Years Foundation Stage, we aim to:
  • Develop children’s confidence to work with numbers from 1 to 20
  • Develop mathematical language to explore, explain and describe characteristics of everyday objects/time and money
  • Develop the capacity to problem solve
  • Support parents and carers in their child’s development in mathematics.
In Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2, children study the National Curriculum for Maths and aim to:
  • Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems
  • Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • Solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication and resilience
  • Engage, inspire and challenge pupils
  • Support parents and carers in their child’s development in mathematics.
