How do we assess Maths?
How do we assess the impact of our Maths curriculum?
We are guided by the National Curriculum for Mathematics which aim to ensure that all pupils in our school.
The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all 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.
Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
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.
Key concept and skills – how are we going to get there?
Our children will have a knowledge and understanding of:
- Number and Place Value and rounding
- Addition and Subtraction
- Multiplication and Division
- Decimals (from Year 4)
- Percentages (from Year 5)
- Properties of Shapes
- Position, direction and movement
- Ratio and proportion (from Year 6)
Our children will be able to:
Recall a range of number facts fluently and automatically
Consider a range of problems, work out the steps needed and apply the appropriate mathematics to solve them
Use a range of concrete materials to support their calculation, reasoning and to provide proof.
Learn without limits, making cross-curricular links to secure application and mastery.
The curriculum we have planned will:
Ensure continuity and progression across key stages, focus on fluency, reasoning and problem solving, deepening knowledge and understanding, supported by robust assessment
Encourage enquiry and the ability to use high-order vocabulary, questioning, curiosity and communication
Ensure that children acquire the skills and knowledge needed for future life-long learning
