This is taught daily as a discrete subject and the programmes of study from the New Curriculum will direct our planning. The Maths Curriculum is split into three areas, these are;
1. Conceptual understanding
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.
Focused mathematics talk are central to our mathematics lessons. Pupils reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
Pupils 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.
