Welcome to Maths at Chesswood
The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
- reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
- can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions”
Chesswood pupils are expected to be very familiar with number; they should know their tables and be able to apply these concepts to solve a variety of problems. The National Curriculum also emphasises the importance of investigational and problem solving work.
At Chesswood Junior School, we follow the White Rose Maths Hub schemes of learning for years 3, 4, 5 and 6. You can find a yearly overview of the topics studied on page 15 of each document, with the Autumn Term on page 16, Spring Term on page 17 and Summer Term on page 18.
