At Gisburn Road Primary School, we are developing a Mathematics Mastery curriculum to ensure every child can achieve learning excellence.
Our aim is for all children to think mathematically, enabling them to reason, solve problems and assess risk in a range of contexts. Children can experience a sense of awe and wonder as they solve a problem for the first time, discover different solutions and make links between different areas of mathematics.
The curriculum provides pupils with a deep understanding of the subject through a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach. This ensures pupils fully understand what they are learning.
At Gisburn Road School we aim to present a mathematics curriculum that is:
- Relevant to the pupil’s experience
The mathematics curriculum should provide pupils with a strong level of mathematical fluency and a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of mathematics. It should enable pupils to become resilient in solving non-routine mathematic problems and enjoy challenging mathematics and acquiring new mathematical skills, representations and thinking.
