Mathematics is important in everyday life and, with this is mind, the purpose of Mathematics at Ditton C of E Junior School is to develop an ability to solve problems, to reason, to think logically and to work systematically and accurately. We want all children to enjoy mathematics and experience success in this subject, therefore, we are proud that our curriculum is creative and engaging and that all children are challenged and encouraged to make progress and excel. New mathematical concepts are introduced using a ‘Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract’ approach; enabling all children to experience hands-on learning when discovering new mathematical topics which allows them to have clear models and images to aid their understanding. Arithmetic and basic math skills are practised daily to ensure key mathematical concepts are embedded so children can recall these quickly and are able to transfer and apply these in different contexts. We are committed to ensuring that children are able to recognise the importance of Maths in the wider world and that they are also able to use their mathematical skills and knowledge confidently in their lives in a range of different contexts.
