At Hawthorn Community Primary School, we believe that all children have the potential to become able mathematicians. We follow the White Rose Maths scheme and work alongside our local Maths Hubs to support our children in securing mastery in all areas of the maths curriculum.
We aim for our children to be able to:
Build a sense of enjoyment and curiosity towards Mathematics.
Recognise the importance of Maths in the wider world.
Use mathematical skills and knowledge effectively in their own lives.
Be fluent in the fundamental key skills of Maths such as recall of number facts and use of the number system.
Develop the ability to reason mathematically, make generalisations and make sense of solutions.
Solve problems by applying their mathematical knowledge.
Have high expectations of themselves.
Believe that they can learn and succeed mathematically to a high level.
Be able to apply what they have learned to the wider curriculum.
Develop independence when working mathematically.
Persevere when doing Maths and see struggle and being stuck as positive and important experiences.
Build their mathematical skills, knowledge and understanding consistently over time.
