Downs View Infant School

Mathematics

Intent:

At Downs View we are committed to developing a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject of Maths for our pupils.

 

Implementation:

  • Through the delivery of a recovery maths curriculum which is innovative, cumulative and personalised in order to meet the needs of pupils following the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • Through the development of children’s fluency within mathematical concepts in order for children to recall and apply facts.
  • By fostering a love and confidence of maths which allows children to reason mathematically.
  • By enabling children to have the tools to apply their knowledge and solve mathematical problems.
  • By allowing children the time to fully understand and explore concepts before rushing on to another concept.
  • Children are encouraged to physically represent mathematical concepts through objects and pictures. Through this they explore abstract ideas, numbers and symbols.
  • Mathematical concepts are explored in a variety of representations and problem-solving contexts to give pupils richer and deeper learning experiences.

 

Impact:

  • Children develop a secure foundation of knowledge in the key area of number and are able to apply this across other mathematical concepts.
  • Children develop a mastery of maths rather than a short term ability to answer questions in a test.
  • Children are able to represent a mathematical concept in multiple ways, using correct mathematical language to communicate related ideas and independently apply the concept to new concepts.
  • Children enjoy maths and can succeed in the next stage of their school life.
