Purpose of study
Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
Each week children have five lessons of maths, which include:
- Arithmetic practice
- Multiplication Practice
- Problem solving activities
- Reasoning questions
- Mastery channeled questioning
- Differentiated challenges
- Self and peer assessments
