Maths at Longwick
Through our Maths provision, we intend to provide a foundation for understanding the world. We aim to develop the ability to reason mathematically by teaching a broad Maths curriculum through a concrete, pictorial, abstract approach.
In line with our school aims to develop SMSC and to inspire our pupils become confident, curious and independent learners, we want to develop an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject. We encourage the children to challenge themselves at all times.
Although the Maths curriculum is organised into distinct strands, pupils are encouraged to make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. Wherever possible, they should also apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects.
