Mathematics

Intent

Our aim at St Margaret’s is to make sure all children will leave our school as able mathematicians. We understand the importance of reasoning and problem solving within maths, to prepare children for the wider world and their future education. All children are encouraged to be curious, ask questions and to test their ideas.
 
At St Margaret’s, we follow a ‘spiral curriculum’ to ensure children explore all areas of maths; empowering every child to become a capable and well-rounded mathematician.  This also allows children to revisit, build upon and make deeper connections.

Implementation

At St Margaret’s we use a concrete – pictorial – abstract approach to ensure children have a deeper understanding of number, make connections, develop fluency and can solve problems in a range of ways. 

To support our teaching, we use our calculation policy (attached below)  to help build upon prior knowledge and to target common misconceptions.
