At Parkgate Primary School we aspire for all children to have a love and understanding of maths, to recognise that they are surrounded by and use mathematical ideas, not just throughout the school day, but constantly in everyday life.
Our curriculum is designed to ensure that the children become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics – to count, recall number facts and calculate efficiently; to be able to reason mathematically and to problem solve.
This is achieved through daily one hour maths lessons in key stages 1 and 2, the regular practice of key skills through our Big Maths sessions throughout all key stages and the opportunity to further apply skills, knowledge and understanding through our integrated afternoons.
Confidence, resilience and a ‘can do’ attitude are nurtured through our teaching and learning strategies; where the use of models, images and mathematical language are at the heart of our approach.
Further support and curriculum guidance is available by year group.
