Our aim at Hempstalls is to promote enjoyment and curiosity of learning through practical mathematics, exploration, investigation and discussion and to develop sustainable learning for pupils for the future. We pride ourselves on providing the best possible opportunities for our pupils by developing their ability to move between concrete, pictorial and abstract representations fluently and confidently. The long-term goal (which also runs through the heart of our curriculum) is to promote and provide opportunities for pupils to develop the core learning skills of confidence, determination, curiosity, aspiration, teamwork, independence, communication and focus.
One of the aims of the National Curriculum is to ensure all pupils become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics. This doesn’t mean learning facts but here at Hempstalls we strive to encourage our pupils explain and allow them to explore the mathematical structure and patterns of the times tables. However, being able to recall facts quickly and accurately, through frequent practice enables children to access more complex problems and concepts during daily maths lessons.
