Mathematics Statement of Intent


We aim to provide a fun, relevant and challenging mathematics curriculum where all children develop mathematical fluency, reasoning and a love of number. We believe mathematical success is possible for all and we strive for all children to become fluent in the fundamentals of maths, developing their conceptual understanding and the ability to apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. We encourage children to develop their speaking and listening skills through their use of mathematical language including reasoning and explanations. We want children to be able to justify, make links to known facts and solve problems with confidence and think of mistakes as learning opportunities.  As mathematics is such an important life skill, we strive to equip our children with the skills necessary for life outside the classroom. We use real life situations in order to develop the children’s problem solving capabilities and the children understand the value and relevance of mathematics through the links to other areas of our creative curriculum.


At Rose Green Infant School in Key Stage 1 we follow the White Rose Maths scheme of work, which we supplement with materials from other schemes.  Our Reception children use some of the White Rose materials alongside a range of other resources.
