“Without mathematics, there’s nothing you can do. Everything around you is mathematics. Everything around you is numbers.” (Shakuntala Devi)
Our Vision for Maths
Maths is an essential and exciting part of our curriculum. Through our daily Maths teaching, we endeavour to ensure that all children are enabled to become confident mathematicians with the necessary skills to tackle Maths in daily life. To achieve this, we encourage cross curricular opportunities wherever possible, so that key concepts are reinforced and consolidated in real life contexts. Maths lessons are fun, interactive and past paced, ensuring that children enjoy their lessons and build resilience towards challenges.
At Long Buckby Infant School, we teach through progressive objectives, which challenge and support all learners in all areas of the Maths curriculum including Number, Place Value; Addition and Subtraction; Multiplication and Division; Fractions; Shape; Position, Direction and Movement; Measure and Statistics. Every lesson, there is a challenge that the children can access to ensure children reach their full potential and never putting a ceiling on their learning.
At Long Buckby Infant School we teach maths by using elements of Maths Makes Sense and White Rose Maths.
Our focus on the foundation’s maths and the design of our curriculum has proven to be a strength of our school. Our children are confident, resilient and have developed a love of maths.
