At Ashton Primary School, we aim to provide a Maths curriculum that develops a passion and enjoyment of Maths and encourages curiosity, questioning and ‘deep thinking’. We foster a ‘can do’ attitude towards Maths and believe that all children can succeed. The majority of the children will be taught the curriculum of their own year groups.
We aim for all pupils to:
- become fluent in mental maths to enable them to think and recall quickly and confidently and apply this to written calculations and problems.
- be able to quickly and skilfully make connections and to apply their mathematical knowledge to problems, investigations, across curricular subject and real to life situations
- to use mathematical language with increasing sophistication to explain, justify or debate a process or line of enquiry
- to have a solid foundation and understanding of the number system and number operations that will enable them to complete calculations, both mental and written, efficiently and accurately.
