Mathematics

Intent for Mathematics:

At Grange View we have developed a maths curriculum that is creative and engaging.  We appreciate that fluency and a confident number sense are essential for our pupils to flourish and progress in their Mathematical learning based on their starting points. We fully value offering our children the opportunity to work with a variety of concrete and pictorial representations to facilitate and support the teaching and learning of Mathematical concepts whether in reception or Year 4. This approach is pinnacle to the development of our children’s  mathematical thinking and equipping them for their next stages at Middle School.  Reinforcement is achieved by ensuring knowledge is revisited regularly throughout the year groups to create confident number sense for all. Our children need to develop necessary skills to make them ‘deep thinkers’  acquiring maths skills that can be recalled quickly and transferred and applied in different contexts. They need to be able to make rich connections across the areas of maths and use their knowledge in other subjects. Maths is the foundation for understanding the world and we want our children to know the purpose behind their learning and to apply their knowledge in their everyday lives, with the intention of raising aspirations and creating a continual love of learning Maths inclusively for all.
