## Maths

The primary aim of maths at Pixmore is to enable children to become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics. Throughout their time here, pupils will have opportunities to develop their fluency of core skills, giving them confidence with mathematics for the future. Helping your child with Maths leaflet for parents

In Maths all pupils will:

• experience a ‘teaching for mastery curriculum’ focusing on mathematical thinking, representation and structure, fluency, coherence and variation.
• question and challenge using convincing and justifying
• be exposed to Maths in real life situations
• be able to know how and which resources to use to help them solve and question and get these for themselves
• work together collaboratively
• use a CPA approach to consolidate understanding
• master different skills through exploring variation
• become fluent in basic number and times table facts
• be familiar with a lesson learning journey using small steps
• have high expectations of themselves and persevere, asking for support when needed and using examples and learning walls etc to support their learning.
• reason coherently
• use speaking frames confidently
• use correct mathematical vocabulary with a deep understanding and confidence
• conjecture and verbalise thoughts
• take part in World Maths Day and STEM week
• be able to decode a problem and apply the appropriate skills and methods
• be proud of their maths learning and books
