" Without mathematics, there's nothing you can do. Everything around you is Mathematics. Everything around you is numbers." - Shakuntala Devi
At Turnfurlong Junior School we believe that children should leave primary education as confident, resilient mathematicians with a deep conceptual understanding of the skills required to approach any maths problem. Maths is a skill we use on a daily basis and is an essential part of everyday life. Therefore, maths forms an important part of our whole curriculum where we aim to ensure that children develop an enjoyment and enthusiasm for maths. We believe that unlocking mathematical fluency is an essential life skill for all learners and is a pre-requisite to being able to reason and solve problems mathematically. In order to develop self-belief, confidence and competence in maths we recognise the importance of securing the basic maths skills and understanding of mathematical concepts. We place emphasis on concrete resources and pictorial representations to enable children to fully understand concepts and principals, when presented with abstract calculations and questions. Our aim is for children to be confident in transferring these key skills to other areas of maths and also the wider world around them. There is, therefore, a strong focus applying these skills through investigations and real-life maths.
