Maths

The Newberries Maths Curriculum strives to:

  • Create confident mathematicians, mathematicians who are problem solvers.
  • Hold number and place value knowledge alongside mental calculations at the heart of the curriculum to enable our pupils to understand the mathematical connections within real life contexts.
  • Give the systematic teaching of reasoning and justification a very high priority throughout the Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and beyond to ensure that children have the skill set to brainstorm, explain, prove their thinking and use these strategic thinking skills to identify efficient mathematical methodology.
  • Ensure that writing and notating their answers as well as thinking process is a crucial part of our curriculum. By the end of Year Six our children will have developed key knowledge and understanding in expressing their mathematical thoughts and ideas clearly through a variety of ways i.e. pictorial representation, bar modelling, part part whole modals, full sentences and more.
  • Give all pupils the opportunity to express their opinions, articulate feelings, listen to and respond appropriately in a range of situations thus enabling them to participate with different groups of children to present ideas with confidence whilst valuing the views of others.  Children will leave us speaking audibly and confidently using mathematical vocabulary correctly.
