Maths Vision Statement
At The Blue School, we consider mathematics to be an international language. Through the development of a mastery curriculum, we aim to enable all children to achieve excellence in maths through reasoning, generalising and solving problems. We aim for our children to become fluent mathematicians, allowing them to function ably in a range of situations.
We strive to develop mathematics as an essential element of communication and we promote the use of mathematical language all the way through our curriculum. Through hands on teaching, we aim to foster a positive attitude towards mathematics and promote enjoyment of the subject. Our mathematics lessons take a CPA approach, where children will experience maths through the concrete handling of resources, before moving onto pictorial representations and finally accessing maths in a purely written form.
