Maths at Northfields Nursery and Infant School
At Northfields we aim to produce confident mathematicians who are able to apply their knowledge and understanding in a variety of ways. We endeavour to provide all children with a fun a varied range of opportunities across the maths curriculum. Children are encouraged to solve challenges and problems with a positive attitude. Here at Northfields we want to ensure that pupils are equipped and confident to apply their mathematical knowledge and skills in their everyday life.
Maths includes many areas including the number system, measures, geometry, problem solving, reasoning and data handling reasoning and these are covered throughout each year following the 2014 National Curriculum. Maths is taught daily and includes oral, mental and written work with a big emphasis on using appropriate mathematical vocabulary. See parent vocabulary sheet and parent booklet
At Northfields, we follow the White Rose Scheme of learning as the basis for implementing the statutory requirements in mathematics. We use a variety of approaches and methods to support children on their mathematical journey and children are encourage to independently use resources and challenge themselves. We ensure that the curriculum is adapted to meet the individual needs of all our pupils to develop their skills at the appropriate level. See our Maths policy which can be found in the link at the bottom of the page.
