Mathematics is a wonderful subject which has its own unique place in the curriculum at Kingstone and Thruxton Primary School. It provides learners with ways to describe, analyse and change the world. Children can experience a sense of awe and wonder as they solve a problem for the first time, discover a more elegant solution and make links between different areas of mathematics.
Learners at Kingstone and Thruxton Primary Schools study mathematics to become functioning adults who are able to think mathematically enabling them to reason, solve problems and assess risk in a range of contexts. We place a huge emphasis on 'Topic Maths', which allows our young mathematicians to experience, use and apply maths in a variety of unusual and unexpected situations!
Vision for teaching and learning Mathematics
- To foster positive attitudes, fascination and excitement of discovery through the teaching and learning of mathematical concepts.
- For our children to develop a ‘can do’ attitude and perceive themselves as mathematicians.
- To broaden children’s knowledge and understanding of how mathematics is used in the wider world.
- For our children to use and understand mathematical language and recognise its importance as a language for communication and thinking.
