The overarching aim for Mathematics in the National Curriculum is to promote high standards of numeracy by equipping pupils with strong mathematical skills, including problem solving command of number, shape, space, Measure . We have adopted the New National Curriculum 2014 which can be accessed https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/national-curriculum
In October 2018 the school launched the 'Math Passport'. There are fifteen passports in total, each with progressively challenging mathematical targets for the children to work towards and achieve. Every child in the school is given Math Passport and work on their targets at least three times a week in school as well as at home. When a child shows mastery of each target in the passport, they are presented with a certificate in our celebration assembly! They are then given their next passport and continue on their travels! Once they have finished travelling the globe, they then move on to travelling through outer space to continue their Math journey. The Math Passport has helped inspire pupils to learn and master mathematical skills such as counting forwards and backwards, number bonds, times tables, multiples, factors and square numbers. Children see mathematics as an enjoyable and important subject and recognise that everyone can do it!
