Shine As A Mathematician

Let Your Light Shine As A Mathematician.

As Mathematicians children at Newtown develop a solid conceptual understanding of Maths, rather than being able to simply complete a set of mathematical procedures.   This is why our children adore Maths – it’s fun because we make it purposeful and practical.  Maths is a problem waiting to be solved.

Our children become confident Mathematicians because we provide them a wide range of exciting and varied experiences.   They learn in a fun and practical way which ensures they have a concrete understanding of concepts before moving on.   Our approach encourages the children to work collaboratively, communicate their ideas clearly whilst rising to the challenging of solving a mathematical problem.    

Daily Maths lessons are taught through 'Power Maths' across the school in mixed ability classes.   The children also have opportunities to develop their mathematical skills in their cross-curricular study work.   Lessons are scaffolded to support struggling learners and rich, sophisticated problems are set to challenge advanced learners.    A wide range of resources are available to help children visualise their learning. 

Our Children will develop

  • An understanding of the important concepts and an ability to make connections within mathematics.
  • A broad range of skills in using and applying mathematics.
  • Fluent knowledge and recall of number facts and the number system.
  • The ability to show initiative in solving problems in a wide range of contexts, including the new or unusual.
  • The ability to think independently and to persevere when faced with challenges, showing a confidence of success.
  • The ability to embrace the value of learning from mistakes and false starts.
  • The ability to reason, generalise and make sense of solutions.
  • Fluency in performing written and mental calculations and mathematical techniques.
  • A wide range of mathematical vocabulary.
  • A commitment to and passion for the subject.
