Maths at St. Ambrose
At St. Ambrose Catholic Primary School, the aims of our maths curriculum are:
To develop fluency in the fundamentals of mathematics.
To reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
To solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems.
Maths in EYFS
In early years the children experience maths everyday through whole class teaching, focused activities with an adult and through play opportunities in and outside the classroom. Maths is discovered, explored, discussed and made sense of from the child's own perspective, guided and facilitated by the adults
Maths in KS1 and KS2
In years 1 - 6, the maths curriculum is delivered using the White Rose maths scheme which supports the concrete, pictorial and abstract approach towards understanding maths.
