- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics developing declarative knowledge through varied and frequent practice, so that pupils develop understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. Children will be able to show their understanding through the sentence stem, ‘ I know that…’
- reason mathematically developing procedural knowledge through having a specific purpose of each strategy to use, which includes breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and utilising determination in seeking a solution, developing a justification or proof (‘show me, prove it, convince me’) using mathematical language such as ‘I know how…’
- use a combination of declarative and procedural knowledge to transform in to strategies to solve problems by applying their mathematical reasoning to a variety of different contexts, ‘I know when…’
Please find below useful documents which support us in the teaching of mathematics at Pendeen School. In the planning guidance you will find our long term plan for teaching mathematics across the whole school.
We utilise Timestables Rockstars and Numbots to embed times tables and number bonds knowledge. Each child has their own login which is sent home at the beginning of the school year.
