Maths Curriculum Intent

At Strike Lane, we believe that through Mathematics our children should be encouraged to think for themselves, make decisions, communicate their understanding and solve problems.

Our aim is for our children to develop into mathematical thinkers who are confident, independent and resilient.

We aim to provide a rich, challenging and child centred curriculum where there is a consistency of approach, standards and expectations. We want to develop enthusiastic, successful learners who enjoy mathematics, make progress and achieve well.

We want children to have a breadth of knowledge, a depth of understanding and mastery of the concepts taught. All children will become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practise with complex problems over time, so that pupils have conceptual understanding and are able to recall and apply their knowledge rapidly and accurately to problems.

All children will have the ability to reason mathematically following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.

All children will have opportunities to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

Our children will demonstrate an improved mathematical mind set with the ability to use rich vocabulary, including the appropriate use of subject specific, technical and mathematical language.

‘Learning and growing together’

Overview and Aims

At Strike Lane Primary School we aim to inspire all children to reach their full academic potential. In mathematics this means ensuring a curriculum that is fully inclusive of all children which:

  • Develops children’s knowledge and understanding of Mathematical concepts whilst enabling them to practice and hone skills and methods;
  • Enables them to think critically and communicate their understanding;
  • Gives them opportunities to apply learnt mathematical skills in different contexts across the curriculum.
  • Provides opportunities to develop problem solving skills useful for maths and across the curriculum.
