Mathematics is important in everyday life. It is integral to all aspects of life and with this in mind we endeavour to ensure that children develop a healthy and enthusiastic attitude towards mathematics that will stay with them to encourage economic wellbeing.
Mathematical experiences help develop skills such as communication, generalizing, evaluating and enquiry. At Holme Community School, we recognise this importance and therefore provide our children with a wide range of mathematical experiences.
Mathematics is taught through a daily lesson using both shared and independent practical activities, which equips children with the knowledge, skills and understanding to use and apply in exploring and investigating mathematics in real life situations. We aim to provide a mathematics curriculum, which will support children to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, able to reason mathematically and solve problems.
How was our curriculum developed?
Our curriculum for mathematics is based on the national curriculum. You can read about the maths national curriculum here. We use the White Rose Maths scheme of work as we believe their approach supports children to develop fluency and embeds mathematics within reasoning and problem solving.
