Mathematics

The New National Curriculum for Mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:
  • become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
  • reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations.
  • can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication.

At Twyning, we love maths!

Problem Solving at Twyning

Here are some pictures of our children talking about problem solving. We are trying to work as a team to logically find all the possible solutions and present them in an organised way.
In our problem solving RUCSAC we have these things to help us:
  • equipment or apparatus
  • jottings (number statements, diagrams)
  • perserverance

Thanks to Tom in Year 3 we now have a new problem solving mantra:

"We don't know.....yet!"

The powerpoint link below will tell you a just little of how the four operations are taught across the school here.
