Mathematics

What makes an effective Maths student at Weston?

Maths is a central part of the Weston Primary School 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 The Teaching of Mathematics at Weston policy. We believe in the importance of making connections between concrete materials, models and images, mathematical language, symbolic representation and prior knowledge. By following the Singapore Maths approach, we ensure that children have the opportunity to practice key skills whilst developing their understanding and application to more complex questioning.

About Mathematics

At Weston, we have been developing a mastery approach to Mathematics for the past four years using the Singapore Maths approach and MathsNoProblem. We feel Mathematics is a creative and highly interconnected discipline that has been developed over centuries, providing the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. It is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. A high-quality mathematics education therefore provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
