At Roger Ascham, children will learn the facts, procedures and conceptual understanding which will form the foundations for a lifelong enjoyment and understanding of maths. By recognising and using maths in a range of subjects across the curriculum, they will learn that maths is an interconnected, creative subject which helps us to study the world.

Children at Roger Ascham will develop mathematical fluency. They will learn facts and procedures and recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately. Fluency in facts and procedure will be underpinned by conceptual understanding. In turn, children’s fluency will also support children to learn new concepts. At Roger Ascham we see the development of fluency and conceptual understanding as mutually supportive.

Children will communicate, study patterns, and represent ideas. They will make conjectures, follow a line of enquiry and develop and present arguments using mathematical language. They will communicate about maths using concrete, pictorial and abstract representations of concepts and numbers.

Children will solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions. Mistakes and misconceptions will be used as learning opportunities and will be shared as part of a collaborative process of problem solving and building understanding.
