Maths at Bosbury
Mathematics teaches us how to make sense of the world around us through developing a child’s ability to calculate, to reason and to solve problems. It enables children to understand and appreciate relationships and pattern in both number and space in their everyday lives. Through their growing knowledge and understanding, children learn to appreciate the contribution made by many cultures to the development and application of Mathematics.
The school uses a variety of teaching and learning styles in Mathematics lessons. Our principal aim is to develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding in Mathematics. We do this through a daily lesson that has a high proportion of whole-class and group-direct teaching in Key Stage 1 and 2. During these lessons we encourage children to ask as well as answer mathematical questions. They have the opportunity to use a wide range of resources such as number lines, number squares, Numicon and small apparatus to support their work. Mathematical dictionaries are available in all classrooms. Children use ICT in Mathematics lessons where it will enhance their learning, as in modelling ideas and methods. We encourage the children to use and apply their learning in everyday situations.
It is our aim in maths to:
Offer a broad and balanced curriculum
To develop children’s confidence and competence with numbers and measures
To present maths in an exciting and challenging way
To develop children’s ability to apply their skills in problem solving and practical activities
To ensure that children learn to record their work in an appropriate manner
To ensure that children are confident in using technical vocabulary to explain their reasoning
To help children realise that numeracy is relevant in many aspects of their lives and in their immediate environment
We do this by:
Making maths lessons fun and engaging
Teaching daily mathematics lessons,
Providing opportunities for interactive oral work with the whole class and groups
Placing an emphasis on mental calculation
Differentiating work to meet the needs of individuals and groups, with all pupils engaged in mathematics
Empowering the children to self differentiate through our 'Ready, Steady, Go' system
Making school maths true to real life
Ensuring the children build their maths concepts through the use models, images and problem solving opportunities.
