In Mathematics, children learn about the nature and use of mathematical ideas and skills. They should be taught about:
The Knowledge, Skills and Understanding which children gain through their study of Mathematics can be regarded in terms of:
How we teach Mathematics at St Edmundsbury
At St Edmundsbury we want all of our children to leave Year 6 as confident, fluent and curious mathematicians who are able to apply their knowledge to a range of problems and experiences.
As part of our teaching of Mathematics, we focus on delivering a mastery approach, supporting all children in our school to take their mathematical knowledge deeper and to achieve their full potential. In order to do this, we embed the following approaches into our teaching:
Our teaching follows a clear progression through the year groups, allowing the children to practise and build upon prior knowledge, as well as linking this to new skills acquired in that year group. By the end of Year 6, children should have a wealth of mathematical skills and knowledge to draw on, allowing them to access problems in depth and through their chosen method.
