At Villiers Primary School our inclusive mathematics curriculum encourages all children to have a resilient, collaborative attitude towards the subject of mathematics. Through our ‘can-do’ approach, children are encouraged to become independent thinkers who are confident and excited to take on engaging and thought-provoking challenges within their maths lessons. Mathematics is integral to all aspects of life and with this in mind we endeavour to ensure that children develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them throughout their education.
As a school, we follow the White Rose Maths Hub scheme of learning which provides the children with the skills to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, giving daily opportunities to problem solve and reason mathematically in a range of real-life contexts. Teachers plan a systematic build-up of fluency, problem solving and reasoning tasks within lessons to encourage focused and meaningful discussions to further enrich understanding.
We aim to provide the pupils with a mathematics curriculum and high quality teaching to produce individuals who are numerate, creative, independent, inquisitive, enquiring and confident. We also strive to provide a stimulating environment and adequate resources so that pupils can develop their mathematical skills to the full.
Alongside White Rose Maths Hubs, we use the National Curriculum mathematics program of study (2014) to ensure that we have full curriculum coverage and strong progression throughout school from Early Years to Year 6.
