Maths

At St Hilda’s CE (VA) Primary School the teaching of maths is geared towards enabling each pupil to develop their learning and achieve their full potential. We endeavour to not only develop the mathematics skills and understanding required for later life, but also to foster an enthusiasm and fascination about maths itself. We aim to increase pupil confidence in maths so they are able to express themselves and their ideas using the language of maths with assurance. We want the children to see mathematics as being relevant to their world and applicable to everyday life as well as being something that they will need as they move on through their school life and ultimately to the world of employment.

 

Our aim is to ensure that all children:

  • Become FLUENT;
  • REASON and EXPLAIN mathematically;
  • Can SOLVE PROBLEMS.

 

We intend to develop, through our teaching of mathematics, the following attitudes:

  • Curiosity and interest;
  • Pleasure and thoughtfulness;
  • Critical appraisal;
  • Independence;
  • Confidence;
  • Perseverance.

Year Group Non - Negotiables

On February 7th, we supported the NSPCC's Number Day campaign.  As well as raising money for a worthwhile charity, we were able to take part in lots of maths activities linked to other subject areas.  The day reminded us how much fun maths could be and how important maths is in lots of elements of our lives.
