Mathematics at Cawston Grange Primary School
Our mathematics vision is to strengthen and deepen the children's mathematical understanding through a mastery approach.
Mathematics is a creative and highly inter-connected 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.
At Cawston Grange Primary School, we aim to make children’s learning in mathematics relevant, practical, creative, exciting and engaging. At Cawston Grange Primary School we aim not only to prepare our children for the next stage of their education, but also to lay the foundations for successful lives after school. We aim for children to achieve their fullest potential in this subject and leave us equipped to apply themselves confidently and wholeheartedly to future challenges.
"Everyone can learn Maths to the highest level." "Mistakes are valuable." "Questions are important."
Asking our children about Maths is really important to making sure we are getting it right....and from our pupil voice in summer 2023, the children have lots of great ideas about what Maths is!
