Our Curriculum Intent
For every learner to be confident mathematically and have a strong conceptual understanding that enables them to successfully apply their knowledge in a range of different contexts preparing them for the world around them and life after Shireland Hall Primary Academy.
- Pupils become increasingly fluent with whole numbers and the four operations, including number facts and the concept of place value.
- This should ensure that pupils develop efficient written and mental methods and perform calculations accurately with increasingly large whole numbers.
- As pupils progress, they will extend their understanding of the number system and place value to include larger integers. This should develop the connections that pupils make between multiplication and division with fractions, decimals, percentages and ratio.
- Pupils can recall and remember key mathematical knowledge (including technical vocabulary) and build on this knowledge.
- Children have opportunities to reason and master a range of maths skills, applying them to a wide range of contexts.
- Children can confidently use a wide range of mathematical vocabulary.
- Children can think independently and persevere when faced with challenges.
- Children understand the importance of mathematics and the role it has in adult life.
