Primary Maths
In mathematics at COBs we will support pupils to make rich connections between mathematical ideas. Pupils will be challenged through being offered a range of problems before being moved onto new content. Our curriculum builds on previous knowledge and skills acquired the previous year or at a previous setting and provides pupils with the opportunities to practise and further develop these skills and deepen their understanding.
We want our pupils to become fluent mathematicians and this will be evidenced in their books through the completion of different activities. The mathematical concept or skills can be shown in multiple ways and mathematical language is used to explain ideas. Independently, children can apply the concept to problems in unfamiliar situations.
