Mathematics Curriculum Overview


Maths1The 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.




At The John Moore Primary School,  we believe good mathematical understanding to be vital. Mathematics is important throughout the various stages of life. So much of our future depends on   understanding, enjoying and applying mathematics.  Our key aims for the children are that they should:

  • become numerate and enjoy working with numbers, measures, shape, data and patterns
  • develop skills for life and mathematical skills linked to other subjects
  • develop mental agility, logical thinking and the ability to solve problems
  • be confident to ask questions and become confident with mathematics
  • be able to explain their methods, reasoning and working
