At Moira Primary School, maths is a coherent journey from EYFS to Year 6 that seeks to develop mathematical skills and conceptual understanding, based upon the principles of mastery. We want pupils to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, to be able to reason and to solve problems.
Our curriculum embraces these National Curriculum aims, and encourages children to become:
- Visualisers – we use the CPA approach to help pupils understand mathematics and to make connections between different representations.
- Describers – we place great emphasis on mathematical language and questioning so pupils can discuss the mathematics they are doing, and so support them to take ideas further.
- Experimenters – as well as being fluent mathematicians, we want pupils to love and learn more about mathematics.
