At Manor Infant School, we value a maths curriculum that is creative and engaging. All children need to have access to this curriculum and to make progress in lessons. Our children need to develop the necessary skills to make them ‘mathematically literate’ and ‘deep thinkers’ acquiring maths skills that can be recalled quickly and transferred and applied in different contexts. They need to be able to make rich connections across the areas of maths and use their knowledge in other subjects. Maths is the foundation for understanding the world and we want our children to know the purpose behind their learning and to apply their knowledge to their everyday lives.
