At the Federation of Middleham (VA) & Spennithorne (VC) CE Primary Schools, the Mathematics Curriculum has been developed so that every child can achieve and reach their full potential.  Children can experience a sense of awe and wonder as they solve a problem, discover different solutions and make links between different areas of mathematics through rich and diverse learning experiences. It provides pupils with a deep understanding of the subject through a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach giving pupils opportunity to reason and solve problems and allows them to develop a fluent conceptual understanding in each area.

We aim to plant mathematics firmly in the real world and challenge the pupils to think about how they could apply concepts taught to everyday life problems. We adopt an approach which prepares children for mastering mathematical concepts and encourages children to embrace mistakes and take risks within an inquisitive and questioning environment. At the root of our mathematics teaching and learning, we aim to develop a positive mathematics mind-set in all children and a life-long love of the subject. Our core aims are to provide a Mathematics curriculum that builds on pupils’ previous learning, individual talents and uniqueness and empowers our children to be:

 

ASPIRATIONAL

RESILIENT

RESPECTFUL

We believe that by having these three aims at the root, will equip our pupils to LIVE FRUITFUL LIVES and to LEARN, LOVE and GROW.

We believe that these are the three fruits that we would like to give our pupils to help them to succeed as life-long learners and children of God. The ‘giving’ of these fruits are what drives the curriculum at the Federation of Middleham (VA) & Spennithorne (VC) CE Primary Schools. We want our children to be happy mathematicians who are confident, reflective, and resilient.
