Mathematics

Mathematics equips pupils with a uniquely powerful set of tools to understand and change the world. These tools include logical reasoning, problem-solving skills and the ability to think in abstract ways.

Mathematics is important in everyday life, many forms of employment, science and technology, medicine, the economy, the environment and development and in public decision-making.

Mathematics is a creative discipline. It can stimulate moments of pleasure and wonder when a pupil solves a problem for the first time, discovers a more elegant solution to that problem, or suddenly sees hidden connections.

Each half term the children are given Key Instant Recall Facts (or KIRFS for short) to focus on in class, practice and learn at home too. The aim is for the children to be able to calculate and apply their mathematical learning accurately and efficiently. Its important that they know the facts thoroughly and can recall them instantly.
