Ladywood Primary School Maths Intent
It is our intention at Ladywood for every child to develop a good understanding of maths, equipping them with the skills of calculation, reasoning and problem solving that they need in life beyond school. We want all children to enjoy maths, experience success and develop a sense of curiosity about the subject with a clear understanding. We believe that all children can achieve in maths and teach for secure and deep understanding of mathematical concepts through manageable steps. We use mistakes and misconceptions as an essential part of learning and provide challenge through rich and sophisticated problems. Maths is a journey and a long-term goal, achieved through exploration, practise and application over time. At each stage of learning, children should be able to demonstrate a deep, conceptual understanding of the topic and be able to build on this.
