Maths in KS2

In Key Stage 1 and 2, our principle aim is to develop children’s knowledge, skills and understanding in mathematics through a daily lesson that has a high proportion of whole-class and group-direct teaching.
Through our mastery approach, we want children to make rich connections between mathematical ideas, developing fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. We also strive for all of our children to be able to confidently apply their mathematical knowledge and understanding to other subject areas.
Most importantly however, we want the children of Swansfield Park Primary School to have a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about mathematics as this we believe will enable them to know more and remember more.
