At Oasis Academy Henderson Avenue, we use the National Curriculum aims to embed skills in all areas of maths.
The 2014 National Curriculum for Maths aims to ensure that all children:
·Become fluent in the fundamentals of Mathematics
·Are able to reason mathematically
·Can solve problems by applying their Mathematics
On a yearly rolling programme, in EYFS, KS1 and Year 3, Mathematics Mastery is taught so we can empower and equip children with the skills and knowledge that they need. In all other year groups, we use the same key principles to develop effective teaching and learning- all of this is developed consistently over time. We are committed to ensuring that children are able to recognise the importance of Maths in the wider community and that they are also able to use their mathematical skills and knowledge confidently in their lives. We want all children to have a love of Mathematics and to experience achievement in the subject, with the ability to reason mathematically. Our children need to develop the necessary skills to make them “deep thinkers” acquiring maths skills that can be recalled quickly and transferred and applied in different contexts. We intend for our pupils to be able to apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects. This subject is an essential to everyday life where the possibilities are endless. We want children to recognise that mathematics can be used in many opportunities within the community from technology and engineering to finance and that it is involved in most forms of employment. The intent of our mathematics curriculum is to design a curriculum, which is accessible to all and will maximise the development of every child’s ability and academic achievement.
