In mathematics at Hugh Myddelton, we want our children to be active learners. We want them to learn how to think deeply, to try out their own ideas and to develop a mathematical language to question and challenge, as they learn.
We want every teacher and student to be a mathematician. Mathematicians have confidence to tackle real life problems. They take pleasure in debating, reasoning and chewing over ideas in maths and they are not held back by a fear of getting it wrong. They steadily acquire fluency in how the different aspects of maths work - number, measures, geometry and statistics. They apply this flexibly in different situations. Mathematicians use and choose from a range of written and mental procedures to calculate and they understand how these work.
Teachers and students will use many different practical resources in mathematics. Children master abstract mathematics when they try out the ideas with objects they can hold and manipulate. They also need to draw pictures and make jottings to explain what they are thinking.
Our maths teaching is fully supported by the Primary Advantage Maths approach, used in all classes. Teachers and students also benefit greatly from our enthusiastic commitment to the ‘Let’s Think’ mathematics cognitive acceleration programme.
