At Bewdley Primary we want children to explore, question, trial, spot patterns, generalise and solve problems in Maths. We teach maths using the Maths No Problem scheme, chosen because problem solving is at the heart of the mathematics. The focus is not on rote learning but on relational understanding. Pupils are encouraged to think mathematically and are introduced to new concepts using the Concrete, Pictorial and Abstract (CPA) approach. Using real life contexts, helps children to develop skills they can use in their everyday lives. It gives Maths meaning. It makes Maths more fun!
We intend for our pupils to be able to apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects. We want them to know that it is essential to everyday life, critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment.
