The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
- reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
- can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
We are excited to be using Singapore Maths here at Christ the King. We want our learners to be confident in both their surface level basic skills and able to explore Mathematics through deep, investigative learning. We support the deeper learning lessons with daily arithmetic sessions so that children have the basics they need to support the methods and reasoning being taught, to develop a secure and deep understanding of Maths.
