The Oaks Primary School

From Little Acorns Grow Mighty Oaks



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:


  • to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasing complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of similar steps and persevering in seeking solutions


     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.
