At Mendlesham, our Maths curriculum provides children with calculation, reasoning and problem-solving skills and a secure knowledge of our number system. Mathematical fluency enables children to reason, make connections, speculate, generalise and prove theories. It ensures that children develop skills and knowledge that are critical to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. Children at Mendlesham will be inspired to approach maths with creativity and curiosity.
Long and Medium Term planning is underpinned by White Rose, which secures progression of skills and knowledge. Continuous formative and summative assessment (PUMA/PiXL) ensures that units are adapted to suit the specific needs of each cohort, either consolidating or extending where necessary. Time allocation and order may vary due to the mixed year group classes.
