Key Stage 2 Maths

When our pupils transition into key stage 3 we hope that they have developed a fascination and excitement for Mathematics. We are passionate and fully committed to developing a balance between the children’s procedural fluency and a conceptual understanding, ensuring that opportunities are available for children to apply their knowledge into purposeful learning which will ensure they are prepared for everyday mathematics which they will need for the future.

We use a wide range of models, visual manipulatives and practical resources to develop a deep conceptual understanding alongside procedural fluency which enables pupils to confidently reason about their mathematics, using a suitable range of mathematical language, recognising its importance for communication and deep thinking. We encourage mathematical talk, where questions are asked to develop mathematical thinking, clarify understanding and identify misconceptions.
