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
The bedrock of the national curriculum is our Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which has carefully prepared children for the learning journey ahead. Within a nurturing and play-based EYFS environment, children have learned basic and transferable skills; absorbed relevant knowledge and grown in maturity, as well as developing a thirst for learning. The details of your child's learning at this important stage and how it has prepared them for the jounrney ahead can be found below.
