At Iveson Primary School children are aware of the importance of Mathematics in everyday life because, as well as teaching the National Curriculum objectives for each year group, we embed maths within engaging cross-curricular projects.
We want our children to enjoy learning maths, which comes through a growing belief in their own ability to achieve successfully within the challenges they undertake. In maths, we believe this is achieved when children are confidently fluent in their understanding of number and in their calculation skills. With this confidence, they can apply what they know to reason and explain their thinking and to solve problems, developing mastery and accessing higher levels of understanding.
We want our children to view maths as absorbing, creative and valuable – with a passion to explore the world of number. Through problem solving and investigation, we want them to develop the resilience, perseverance and independence.
Using our carefully sequenced delivery of the maths curriculum, we want our children to be ready to progress to the next stage of their learning, believing in their own ability to be successful mathematicians.
