Maths is a powerful life tool and is a fundamental part of our everyday life. It’s almost impossible to get through a day without using it in some way, because our world is full of numbers to handle and problems to solve. Having a good understanding of maths helps children to make sense of it all, making life that little bit easier. At Brook Field, we believe in developing a positive attitude towards this subject and provide our children with the skills to think logically and work systematically.
The National Curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
Become fluent in the core areas of mathematics, recalling and applying knowledge rapidly and accurately
Reason mathematically, exploring and investigating relationships and generalisations, as well as justifying mathematically using appropriate language
Can persevere to solve complex problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of contexts, breaking down the problems into a series of simpler steps
