At Rockbeare, we believe that Maths is essential to everyday life, critical to Science, Technology and Engineering and necessary for financial Literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality Maths Education provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject. Pupils develop their use of mathematical vocabulary and use this to explain their thinking and reasoning and are expected to ask questions to further their learning. We want to ensure that our pupils achieve a deep understanding of mathematics without any pre-conceived ideas being placed on a child’s ability. Fundamental to our philosophy about mathematics is the belief that all children can achieve in Maths. Our hope is that pupils will leave Rockbeare with the ambition for life-long learning within the discipline as well as the skills to access further mathematical concepts when they move on to secondary school and beyond.
Below is an overview of the areas taught over the course of each year group. You can also find reference to the key indicators that we use in school to support our understanding for whether your child is meeting the Age-Related Expectation.
