“Mathematics is, in its own way, the poetry of logical ideas” Albert Einstein
At Winscombe we want our children to love, be curious and confident about maths. By the end of Year 6, we want our children to be creative and resilient so they can successfully solve complex maths problems in lots of different ways showing their flexibility as mathematicians but also being able to take on advice about other people’s approaches.
Throughout, the school intention has been to develop this love and curiosity for mathematics. We strive to ensure every child feels valued, confident and able to participate, with no limitations within each lesson. We put a great emphasis on how we teach Mathematics at Winscombe. When it comes to being successful Mathematicians, as stating above, we have clear expectations for staff and children, and we continue to develop methods to help parents support their child.
