Mathematics at Brooklands

We aim to equip children with knowledge and understanding of mathematical concepts including those relevant to everyday life, e.g. money and time. Using and applying knowledge and skills is an important part of children’s learning and there are opportunities for pupils to embed these skills in practical investigations and problem solving exercises.

Mathematics helps children to make sense of the world around them through developing their ability to calculate, to reason and to solve problems. It enables children to understand and appreciate relationships and pattern in both number and space in their everyday lives.

At Brooklands Primary School we aim to:

  • Provide consistent high quality teaching in all areas of mathematics.
  • Enable all children to access the curriculum at an appropriately differentiated level.
  • Enable every child to feel comfortable to explore their understanding of maths in a safe, enjoyable and challenging learning environment.
  • Promote enjoyment and enthusiasm for learning through practical activity, exploration and discussion.
  • Develop logical thinking and reasoning skills through a natural curiosity and investigative approach.
  • Understand the importance of mathematical skills in everyday life.
  • Encourage the application of mathematical skills in other curriculum areas.
  • Develop the ability to solve problems through decision-making and reasoning in a range of contexts.
