Maths at Bromet School
In September 2014, a new curriculum was introduced which involved many changes to the way Maths is taught and the expectations for each year group. There are three aims of the Primary Mathematics Curriculum: fluency, reasoning and problem solving. In all lessons, were children are required to think mathematically, they are encouraged to apply their knowledge to a range of different activities and are given the opportunity to reason and problem solve. It is no longer enough to just get the answer correct; the children need to be able to prove why and explain how and why.
In lessons, children are encouraged to use apparatus to develop a secure understanding rather than using just numbers and solving problems. The ‘Mastery’ ensures the children have a deep understanding of the subject, where they can make links between the different areas of Maths.
