Intent of our Maths curriculum:
Maths is crucial to all aspects of modern day life. Many of us use it everyday without even realising it. Here at Furze Platt Primary Federation we are working to ensure that children gain a depth of understanding about mathematical concepts that will enable them to apply their learning in real life scenarios and be confident and resilient in their understanding of maths. We ensure children are fluent in number bonds, times tables and can manipulate numbers. They are able to then reason mathematically using pictorial, concrete and abstract methods such as part/whole model, bar model and written formal methods. Children can then use this knowledge to solve problems, be confident in their explanations and thinkings and see how all areas of math are interconnected with each other and the real world.
Characteristics of our Maths curriculum:
Implementation of our Maths curriculum in KS2:
Attached is our Calculation Policy. This document identifies within which year group we use certain mathematical written methods and also examples of how to use them. Also the Key Instant Recall Facts are included for you to use in the relevant year group. These are facts that children are expected to be able to recall fluently and with confidence.
MyMaths is the online website that we use for Maths homework but it also provides clear examples on how we teach Mathematical concepts and calculations.
