Recovery Statement of Intent

 

As we return to school and begin the process of co -constructing a recovery curriculum, we aim to ensure that we are responsive to the needs of our children and form a holistic approach to learning in order to support them both emotionally and cognitively.

 

Within the Mathematics curriculum we aim to develop new key knowledge and skills in parallel with a period of prolonged revision in order to ensure that our young learners are given sufficient time to rebuild their confidence and re-adjust to their environment. Mental Arithmetic will be at the heart of the curriculum and will provide opportunities to develop a love of calculating large numbers mentally; Recalling key number bonds and facts; Applying CPA (Concrete Pictorial and Abstract) manipulation of digits across the Maths Strands of Number, Measurement, Statistics and Geometry. We will use a responsive approach throughout all sessions supporting, guiding and developing confidence in using and applying their mathematical understanding across a varied range of contexts enabling them to become successful mathematicians.

 

We follow the National Curriculum 2014 for Mathematics

Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
