Maths

At Wellow School we aim to deliver an inspiring and engaging mathematics curriculum through high quality teaching, thus providing our pupils with rich learning experiences to deepen their understanding of this subject.

 

We seek to foster our pupils’ curiosity and wonder; and to promote creativity, independence and confidence in Mathematics. Through the development of reasoning and problem solving skills, teachers aim to provide opportunities for our children to apply their mathematical knowledge in meaningful ways to understand the world. Mathematics is linked closely with our Science curriculum and integrated across other areas of the curriculum.

 

Throughout Maths lessons, we endeavor to ensure that children:

 

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics through varied and frequent practice and through solving increasingly complex problems over time

  • develop a conceptual understanding of mathematics so they understand ‘why’

  • are able to recall facts and procedures and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately

  • have opportunities to explore, investigate and reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, forming conjectures and generalizing about the relationships and patterns they notice

  • are able to communicate their understanding clearly and accurately by developing arguments, justifications or proof using mathematical language

  • can apply their mathematics flexibly to solve a variety of problems presented in familiar and unfamiliar situations

  • develop their growth mindset by grappling and persevering with challenging problems. Pupils will be encouraged to find a starting point and to break down a problem into smaller steps

  • have a positive and enthusiastic attitude to mathematics that remains with them for the rest of their lives.
