Maths at Ellistown is taught in discrete year groups with each lesson encompassing the 3 aims of the National Curriculum (2014): Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning, using a wide variety of resources to suit all learners needs and where possible links are made and lessons taught through our themed curriculum, for example analysing garphs and charts regarding climate and rainfall in our Traveller's Guide theme in Upper Key Stage 2. In addition to these maths lessons children in Years 1 to 6 begin their day with an additional short 'Morning Maths' session where they are able to practice and refine key number concepts and skills. For information regarding written calculation methods please see our Calculation Policy by clicking here.
Through our teaching of mathematics, we aim for all of our pupils to be able to:
Develop an enjoyment and curiosity for mathematics.
Develop a positive attitude towards mathematics and have an understanding and awareness of the relevance of mathematics in the real world. Applying their skills not only to problems within the classroom, but also to ‘real life’ contexts.
Develop competence and confidence in their understanding and use of mathematical concepts and skills.
Have an ability to problem solve and reason, think logically and work systematically and accurately.
Develop independent and collaborative ways of working, explain and share their ideas – justifying their thinking.
