Curriculum Statement

At Homefields, we base teaching and learning of mathematics on the “Chris Quigley Essentials” curriculum to enable children to develop a DEPTH of learning. This curriculum is brought to life through careful planning and sequencing through the use of the White Rose schemes of learning in Key Stage 1 and 2, and through the updated Development Matters scheme in EYFS to work towards the Early Learning Goals.

In our school, mathematics is an interrelated and engaging subject in which pupils are taught to move fluently between representations of mathematical ideas: an essential tool for everyday life.

Mathematics teaches children how to make sense of the world around them through developing the ability to calculate, to reason and to solve problems in an engaging and interactive way. It enables them to understand and appreciate relationships and patterns in both number and space in their everyday lives.

Our vision for mathematics at Homefields is to enable pupils to:

  • Have an understanding of the important concepts and an ability to make connections within mathematics.
  • Posses a broad range of skills in using and applying mathematics.
  • Have fluent knowledge and recall of number facts and the number system.
  • Develop the ability to show initiative in solving problems in a wide range of contexts, including the new or unusual.
  • Develop the ability to think independently and to persevere when faced with challenges, showing confidence in success.
  • Have the ability to embrace the value of learning from mistakes and false starts.
  • Have the ability to reason, generalise and make sense of solutions.
  • Be fluent in performing written and mental calculations and mathematical techniques.
  • Confidently use a wide range of mathematical vocabulary.
  • Show a commitment to and passion for the subject.
