Mathematics at Arboretum
Mathematics is part of our everyday life and, at Arboretum, we strongly believe the children should understand the relevance of their learning. From the very start of their learning journey, we ensure children receive a high quality education that not only provides a foundation for understanding the world but is also fun and memorable.
At Arboretum, we follow the aims of the National Curriculum for Mathematics. We focus on the following 3 areas:
Fluency – Children practise key skills regularly so that they are able to recall and apply their knowledge quickly and accurately to answer questions.
Reasoning – Children develop arguments and justify their learning using mathematical language.
Problem solving - Children solve problems by applying their learning to a variety of problems with increasing complexity and depth. Children break down the problems into a series of simpler steps that ultimately make solving the problems more manageable.
