Maths Learning at St Nicholas of Tolentine
At St Nicholas of Tolentine we believe that every child can be a mathematician. Our aim is that every child enjoys and achieves their full potential in mathematics.
Main Aims within the New Curriculum
Children 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.
Children reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
Children 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.
Rising Stars Primary Framework
To ensure complete coverage across the curriculum our teachers use the Rising Stars Framework to guide their planning. As a school we have created a Calculation policy and Fluency document. These will help you to understand the different concepts and methods that your child will be experiencing each year.
