The main aims of the Maths curriculum are fluency, reasoning and problem solving. The Grove Academy Mathematician should leave at the end of KS2 with

• an understanding of the important concepts in maths

• make connections within mathematics

• a broad range of skills in using and applying mathematics

• fluent knowledge and recall of number facts and the number system

• show initiative in solving problems in a wide range of contexts

• think independently and to persevere when faced with challenges

• reason using a wide range of mathematical vocabulary

• fluency in performing written and mental calculations and mathematical techniques

• a commitment to and passion for the subject

We use Herts ESSENTIAL maths.

The sequences are written as a spiral curriculum in which learning is built upon step by step, sequence by sequence and year on year. It is aspirational and ensures progression and coverage through the primary phase.

Teachers plan carefully and adapt the materials and focuses to meet the needs of their class. Please support your child’s learning by discussing with them what they have learned at school, showing an interest in their homework and taking the opportunity to count with your child, help them to remember their tables and talk about maths as it occurs naturally in your lives, for instance when shopping or cooking.
