Maths at Broomhaugh

Mathematics enables children to make sense of the world around them.  At Broomhaugh, our aim is to provide a rich, stimulating and connected curriculum accessible to all pupils right through from Reception to Year 4 and beyond.

 In doing so, we want to ensure our pupils:

  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that they develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately
  • are able to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.

We are committed to developing children’s curiosity about the subject, as well as an appreciation of the beauty and power of Mathematics.
