What makes a good Maths student?
A passion for maths and someone who is willing to try new things and strategies without the fear of making a mistake, an ability to discuss their ideas and be experimental with practical resources to support their learning.
Maths is a central part of the Sacred Heart Curriculum. It is the school’s vision to produce fluent mathematicians through providing all children with a secure conceptual understanding and efficiency in procedural approaches; this is reflected in the schools calculation policy. We believe in the importance of making connections between concrete materials, models and images, mathematical language, symbolic representation and prior knowledge. Through our teaching sequence, we ensure that children have the opportunity to practice key skills whilst developing their understanding and application to more complex questioning.
