Maths Curriculum Intent

Mathematics is an important element of everyday life. At St Pius, we aim to give all children positive and fun experiences that will enable them to acquire the knowledge, skills and understanding of the subject. We place a strong emphasis on the four operations of number as well as other core skills such as shape, space and measure, algebra and statistics. All this achieved alongside the National Curriculum. In maths lessons, children are provided with problem solving and reasoning activities, relating to real life situations that give opportunities to use and apply their skills and knowledge. Children maintain their mathematical fluency by recapping key skills daily. Alongside explicit maths lessons, where they learn both written and mental methods, we aim to include mathematics in our cross curricular activities, using practical, hands-on experiences wherever possible.
