What does MATHS look like at Archbishop Hutton’s?
Mathematics is taught through daily lessons which equip children with the knowledge and understanding to use and apply - exploring and investigating mathematics in real life situations. It will be expected that children are able to think logically and critically and explain their reasoning through speaking and listening, mental mathematics and informal / formal written methods. Maths is evident across the curriculum with learnt knowledge being applied in Science, Geography, History and DT lessons. Home learning is used to embed and practise concepts learnt in school.
Why is MATHS an important part of our curriculum?
Mathematics teaches us how to make sense of the world around us. With a well developed ability to calculate, to reason and to solve problems, children are enabled to understand and appreciate relationships and pattern in both number and space in their everyday lives. Mathematics is integral to all aspects of life and with this in mind we endeavour to ensure that children develop a healthy and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them to encourage economic wellbeing in later life.
Mathematical experiences help develop skills such as communication, generalising, evaluating and enquiry. At Archbishop’s Primary School, we recognise this importance and therefore provide our children with a wide range of mathematical experiences.
We have included documents which demonstrate the content of our curriculum.
