Maths at Great Meols

DSC_1316.jpg

Our curriculum has been designed to ensure that all children have the opportunity to reach the expected standard (and beyond) at the end of Year 6. Planning has been adapted using White Rose Maths materials, ensuring the correct flow of topics, pace of progression and exposure to mathematics in a variety of contexts. We strive to enable children to:

• become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately;

• reason mathematically to make sense of mathematics and understand problems in a variety of contexts and forms and to justify or prove ideas using mathematical language;

• solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
