Mathematics plays an essential role in our world today and therefore it is important to educate our pupils through developing their skills, knowledge, understanding and enjoyment and promote relevance and purpose to everyday situations.
At The Oaks, we believe that it is important for all our pupils to develop their mathematical skills and understanding to allow them to deal confidently with numbers, problems and information daily through life. We have now introduced the new National Curriculum for all year groups, except Years 2 & 6 which can be accessed at the end of this document.
Aims of the new National Curriculum:
Children are taught in their year groups through a differentiated whole class approach and the Numeracy Support Programme is an additional maths intervention that we use to target individuals and groups. Our daily maths lessons include developing mental strategies, using the correct mathematical language to explain their learning and reasoning, participating in practical and investigative work, using a range of written methods and solving mathematical problems. We want our children to become confident and numerate and enjoy their learning.
