Maths at St Johns
Maths Curriculum Intention
At St John's, our Maths curriculum is intended to:
- Ensure children have the essential fluency skills in the four key calculations;
- Develop the children as critical thinkers, who are able to analyse problems in mathematical terms, identifying what they need to do and to ask questions to further their learning;
- Encourage children to take ownership of their learning, by choosing strategies to solve problems to suit the purpose of their task and organise answers in a logical way;
- Develop the children’s knowledge of how maths can be used in everyday life;
- Find links within other subject areas, showing transferal of key mathematical skills;
- Provide opportunities for children to be creative, curious and logical as they navigate, investigate and contribute to answering problem solving and reasoning questions.

This information is used to make a judgement about achievement in this subject at the end of each term and reported to parents as Expected level or Not Expected level at the end of the school year.
- Pupils’ work is evidenced in workbooks.
- End of unit assessment tests which show the level a child is working at.
