Maths leader - Mrs Game
At Cradley C of E Primary School we believe that mathematics is a tool for everyday life. It is a whole network of concepts and relationships which provide a way of viewing and making sense of the world. It is used to analyse and communicate information and ideas and to tackle a range of practical tasks and real life problems. Our school vision ‘Believe, belong, be happy; every child, every chance, every day’ will be interwoven into each and every maths lesson. In addition to this, our 6 core values will be fundamental in promoting positive learning behaviours.
It is our aim to develop:
all children to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics so that they are efficient in using and selecting the appropriate written algorithms and mental methods, underpinned by mathematical concepts
a child’s ability to solve problems applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including unfamiliar contexts and to model real-life scenarios
a child’s ability to be able to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry and develop and present a justification, argument or proof using mathematical language.
and promote enjoyment of learning through practical activity, exploration and discussion;
and promote confidence and competence with numbers and the number system;
a practical understanding of the ways in which information is gathered and presented;
an understanding of geometry and statistics.
