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.
At Shaftesbury Junior School we follow the White Rose Mathematics scheme of work to ensure we deliver a balanced Maths curriculum. We hope during the four years that our pupils are with us they will become Confident children who are resilient, fluent mathematicians.
To do this we use a range of different strategies and resources to enrich our Maths teaching and make it accessible, engaging and give it purpose for the children.
