Curriculum Overview

We believe Mathematics is one of the fundamental building blocks for a child’s education. As a result, we have introduced a whole school approach to the delivery of Mathematics at Holy Trinity. This begins in EYFS and develops throughout our primary phase, developing our classroom principles outlined below:

Our Classroom Principles

Our classroom principles are the evidence-based foundations upon which our entire teaching approach is built:

SUCCESS FOR ALL

Every child can enjoy and succeed in mathematics as long as they are given the appropriate learning opportunities.

DEEPER UNDERSTANDING

Allowing time to fully explore and apply ideas enables pupils to truly grasp the concepts they are learning.

PROBLEM-SOLVING

Encouraging pupils to identify, connect and apply relevant mathematical principles to solve new problems.

MATHEMATICS THINKING

Developing the skills to be systematic, generalise, come up with new ideas and seek out patterns

MATHEMATICAL LANGUAGE

Strengthening conceptual understanding through discussion, armed with the language to explain and reason.

MULTIPLE REPRESENTATIONS

Using objects, pictures, numbers and symbols to represent mathematical ideas and make connections in different ways.
