Our Mathematics Curriculum Overview

Our aim is that all children:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics so that they are efficient in using and selecting the appropriate written algorithms and mental methods, underpinned by mathematical concepts;
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of problems with increasing sophistication, including in unfamiliar contexts and to model real-life scenarios;
  • can reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, and develop and present a justification, argument or proof using mathematical language.

 ‘Mathematics is a creative and highly interconnected 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.’  National Curriculum.

At Warren Road, we believe that all children should be given the opportunity to learn in a variety of ways, using different representations and that they will apply their knowledge to other subjects.  We also acknowledge the importance of mental arithmetic and times tables, and how a strong foundation in these can help with the understanding of other mathematical concepts.

Within each Year Group, we cover the following topics throughout the year:

  • Number – place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division and fractions
  • Measurement
  • Geometry – Properties of shape, position and direction
  • Statistics (Year 2 upwards)
  • Ratio and Proportion (Year 6)
  • Algebra (Year 6)
