Our Intent for Mathematical Learning at Westwood Primary School
At Westwood Primary School, our children are able to reason mathematically, solve problems and develop fluency in their understanding of number through a number rich environment. Children are enabled to progress stage by stage at a pace that is appropriate to them, allowing for deeper conceptual understanding and fluency.
Our 5 Maths pillars:
The National Curriculum:
The National Curriculum for Mathematics (2014) aims to ensure that all pupils:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
- reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
- can 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.
