'A high-quality mathematics education provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject'. (National curriculum 2014)
Mathematics at Killamarsh Infant and Nursery School
Our aim is for children to feel confident and positive about their mathematics, to engage actively in mathematical activities, becoming increasingly responsible for their own learning, and to develop understanding of how and when to apply the skills and concepts they have learned.
Our main planning resources for mathematics are White Rose supplemented by other activities and materials where appropriate. Mathematics is taught mainly through a daily lesson, although where possible we also identify opportunities to apply and develop mathematical skills in other curriculum areas and through our cross-curricular topic work.
Below, our Calculation Policy explains the progression of calculation skills across the school and the Overview of Strategies and Methods gives examples to show how the skills are taught to the children using appropriate models, images and concrete apparatus.
Key expectations for each year group can be found in the Progression link below.
For Maths Week this year we all took part in different activities. We used a story for our Maths such as 10 Little Dinosaurs and The Action of Subtraction. We did outdoor maths and also used Maths for cross curricular learning.
