"Mathematics is not about numbers, equations, computations, or algorithms: it is about understanding."
William Paul Thurston
At St Matthew’s Primary school, our school vision is to encourage all children to flourish spiritually, morally, emotionally, physically and intellectually in all aspects of life demonstrating perseverance and resilience; this is emulated across all curriculum areas.
- The mathematics curriculum intent at St Matthew’s provides a clear sequence of learning that allows teachers to adapt their teaching to ensure that all learners make progress.
- We strongly believe that mathematics is a fundamental skill that is not just about numbers, equations, calculations or algorithms but about developing a conceptual understanding of the world around us allowing us to become logical thinkers who can develop appropriate strategies to solve and embrace problems and difficulties we may encounter in life.
- We know the importance of linking maths to everyday life so that children are aware of maths and can become lifelong learners in the future.
Through delivering high-quality lessons that recap on previous learning and encapsulate the use of concrete, pictorial and abstract representation, we believe all learners are given the opportunity to access their learning and progress appropriately in maths. we encourage independence and our school vision strongly promotes the development of resilient, independent learners. We believe that these skills will not only prepare children for secondary school and the next chapter in their life but will prepare them with skills for a lifetime.
