Mathematics underpins many aspects of our everyday lives. At Grands Vaux we want to give our children the mathematical skills to deal with situations in every day life.
We want to build on their conceptual understanding of Mathematics in order to deepen their mathematical knowledge and understanding.
We want our children and staff to be excited about their learning and teaching. We want a learning environment that is safe and stimulating with appropriate challenge. It is essential to provide learners with opportunities to discover and nurture their mathematical skills and talents in order to fulfill their potential.
We aim for all our children to:
-become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, so that they develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately and ultimately enjoy the experience that Mathematics can bring
-reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
-be able to solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking a variety of solutions.
