At Gillas Lane, we recognise that Mathematics is essential in everyday life and, with this in mind, we ensure that children develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them throughout their lives. We strive to provide children with Maths rich learning tasks which allow them to investigate, reason and problem solve in real, exciting and meaningful contexts.
Our curriculum is designed to meet the requirements of the 2014 curriculum which aims to ensure all pupils:
- 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
-Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including in unfamiliar contexts and to model real-life scenarios -
-Can reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry and develop and present a justification, including in unfamiliar mathematical language.
All children from Year 1 to Year 6 have a tightly structured daily 90 minute maths lesson which is fast paced and engaging.
