Mathematics Subject Intent:
It is our intent that children will learn mathematics through a mastery approach, which is deep, sustainable and achievable for all. They will have fluent knowledge and understanding of the number system with the ability to rapidly recall number facts, in addition to performing written and mental calculations efficiently. They will develop factual, conceptual and procedural fluency through a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach. Through a broad range of skills in applying mathematics, they will solve real life problems and reason about mathematical concepts and make connections. When faced with challenges in new and unusual contexts, children will think independently and persevere, showing confidence in success. Through their growing knowledge and understanding, children will learn to appreciate the contribution made by many cultures to the development and application of mathematics. As children develop a sense of excitement and curiosity about maths, they will understand that it is a creative and highly inter-connected subject.
