Maths - INTENT
At Newport our intent is for children to have the opportunity to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, making connections between all areas of maths through varied and frequent practice. Children will tackle increasingly complex problems that will develop their conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge. Children will be supported to develop a rich mathematical language which they will use to communicate with their peers, allowing them to use their creativity to conjecture relationships, justify and provide proofs. Children are inherently curious and through varied maths teaching strategies, this curiosity will be fostered and encouraged. Children will develop resilience when solving problems, breaking them down into easier to manage steps. Through rich, contextual mathematics, children will be able to demonstrate compassion by solving real-world problems.
Maths - CURRICULUM
For our maths curriculum, we follow the White Rose scheme of learning which is a small step, mastery-based scheme of learning. This resource provides coherent sequencing for the primary maths curriculum.
Please find below more detail for each year group’s curriculum.
Below that, there is a link to document that outlines our maths progression for each key strand of mathematics.
