At Chenies we strive to foster an enjoyment of mathematics and to help children understand the place it has within their everyday lives and the wider world. We want our children to develop their ability to communicate mathematical reasoning and become critical thinkers who can confidently apply their mathematical knowledge to a variety of problems.
The teaching of mathematics follows the National Curriculum. A range of resources are used to deliver the curriculum and a range of strategies are implemented for the children to develop mathematical skills:
- investigation and problem solving
- interaction with others
- questioning and explaining
- consolidation of skills
- application of skills and
- exploration and experimentation
Mathematics forms an integral part of the school curriculum, and is therefore relevant to other areas of learning. Where possible this is emphasised to the children and they develop their mathematical problem solving skills across different areas of the curriculum.
