At Stepney Greencoat, we understand the importance of fostering curiosity and creativity, as well as everyday numeracy skills, which is why we aim to provide engaging and challenging lessons to develop our young mathematicians.
At Stepney Greencoat, our aim, in line with the national curriculum, is to ensure that our 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.
We understand the importance of developing key skills in order to create confident, life-long maths learners so we have also invested in The Maths Factor online to support maths learning in and out of school.
It is important to us at Stepney Greencoat that pupils are encouraged to take risks in their learning and to become confident problem solvers. Our teachers use a wide range of strategies to help foster perseverance and resilience in approaching new tasks.
At Stepney Greencoat, we are keen to involve parents and families in their children’s learning. We currently set Star Group Daily Tasks to help pupils who require further support with key skills and invite a parent or carer to attend each weekly session alongside their child! Our website also includes videos to support the learning of these key skills which can be accessed from home.
