“The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated
but to make complicated things simple.”
At All Hallows C of E Primary, we want all of our children to love Maths and develop into secure mathematicians with the ability to reason, solve problems and think logically. Once children learn the value of Maths in real life, they begin to see how useful and necessary it is and see that it isn't a subject in isolation. Teaching curriculum content in blocks, allows children to explore skills and knowledge in depth and gain a secure understanding of particular subject matter. Key knowledge and skills are also revisited regularly allowing repetition to embed learning. A concrete, pictorial, abstract approach provides children with a clear structure in which they can develop their depth of understanding of mathematical concepts. We aim to ensure that mathematics is a high profile subject that children view positively and with a 'can do' attitude.
