Maths at our school

At Wildridings, Maths is an integral part of our curriculum and is taught across the school 5 times a week.  We use the White Rose Hub planning as a basis, using the small steps of learning to ensure children get a broad and balanced maths journey. 

Our aims at Wildridings Primary School are:

  • To promote enjoyment and enthusiasm for learning through practical activity, exploration and discussion.

  • To provide visual, verbal, inspiring and hands-on learning opportunities.

  • To promote confidence and fluency with numbers and the number system, including time tables.

  • To develop the ability in children to solve problems through decision making and reasoning in a range of contexts.

  • To develop a practical understanding of the ways in which information is gathered and presented.

  • To explore features of shape and space, building on their understanding of their immediate environment.

  • To understand the importance of mathematics in everyday life.

 

During their time at Wildridings, pupils will be taught knowledge, skills and understanding in mathematics through;

  • Activities that extend their understanding of the number system to include integers, fractions and decimals.

  • Approximating and estimating with increasing accuracy and competence.

  • Using patterns and relationships to explore simple algebraic ideas.

  • Applying their measuring skills in a range of contexts.

  • Collecting and representing data through practical activities and using this data to make conclusions and draw inferences.

  • Exploring and using a variety of resources and materials.

  • Using mathematics in their work in other subjects.
