Basic skills and Mastery
At Parklands we want to ensure that all children master the basic skills in Mathematics so they are fully equipped to learn more advanced mathematical concepts. Maths is a journey and long-term goal, achieved through exploration, clarification, practice and application over time. At each stage of learning, children should be able to demonstrate a deep, conceptual understanding of a concept and be able to build on this over time. The deepest learning is what we are aiming for by teaching Maths using the Mastery approach.
We also raise the profile of Mathematics by hosting events such as problem solving days, the COUNTATHON and the FACTATHON.
We aim to provide our children with a wide mathematical education in an enjoyable, relevant and creative way. We use real life experiences so that children can begin to understand the purpose and importance of applying their mathematical skills in order to solve problems and engage them in future learning.
We aim for children to become fluent and confident in the fundamentals of mathematics, so they can recall and apply their mathematical knowledge rapidly and accurately. Children are encouraged to reason mathematically by solving a variety of puzzles and problems.
