At Stoke Park Junior School, our aim is to ensure that all our children are confident, both in using mathematics in the school and in applying their knowledge to their daily lives. We encourage all our pupils to become both creative and resilient problem solvers through mental maths, group tasks and independent work.
The aim of our curriculum, which is in line with the National Curriculum and Hampshire planning models, is to ensure that all pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, through varied and frequent practice which increases in complexity over time.
Pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall, applying knowledge both rapidly and accurately, and how to represent calculations in a variety of different ways (including using concrete resources, pictorially and abstract forms). Our pupils reason mathematically through lines of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, developing arguments and the use of appropriate mathematical language to justify or provide proof.
They can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking them down into a series of simpler steps, persevering in seeking solutions.
If you have any questions about the teaching of Maths at our school, please do contact our Maths Leader, Mr Matt Bristow
