‘The art of becoming a mathematician – creating passion for contextualised maths through real life problem solving’
We deliver a skills based curriculum, in which the basic skills and knowledge required to progress learning are of paramount importance and underpin all learning.
At Lime Tree, we see maths as an essential life skill and a practical tool with which children can make sense of the world around them.
Developing young mathematicians through a skills approach where all children are immersed in hands-on practical experiences underpins our teaching. As such, we deliver a skills based curriculum that is engaging, challenging and enjoyable. All lessons focus on rigour and ensuring progression by building on prior learning with the children moving from concrete to pictorial and then abstract concepts as their confidence and competence in each mathematical area develops.
Children learn to ask questions, work collaboratively and apply their basic skills from Early Years to Year 6 to ensure that they:
- become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics
- are able to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry
- can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication.
