At Springfield Primary we aim to offer our pupils rich and exciting learning opportunities in mathematics that will nurture them to achieve and develop, and inspire them to do their very best. We want our children to leave us as confident mathematicians, equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to help them thrive in the real world and to empower their future studies.
We believe that mathematics should be a fun, enjoyable and exciting subject with lots of hands on experiences that make mathematics relevant to the outside world. Through our 5-point mastery model implemented from AET Mathematics, and through the use of concrete, visual and abstract methods we aim to make mathematics achievable and accessible to everyone.
We develop a positive attitude to mathematics through language, experiences and enthusiastic teaching. We have high expectations of presentation, learning and outcomes with clear cross curricular links.
Springfield Primary offers a rich mathematics curriculum that inspires, nurtures and empowers children to collaborate, achieve and belong and fully prepares them for the real world.
The key expectations of the AET curriculum mirrors that of the national curriculum for mathematics:
- Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
- Reason mathematically
- Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems
The AET curriculum is made up of 15 units of work based around 15 mathematical behaviours.
