Mathematics Vision
Maths Vision

Mathematics is a life skill that equips us to make sense of the world around us by connecting knowledge from past and present experiences. These skills are essential to our everyday life, vital to science, technology and engineering, and necessary for financial literacy and most forms of employment. Our vision for Parkhill Junior School is for all children to become efficient mathematicians who are passionate, excited and are willing to take risks and challenge themselves to achieve their full potential and view themselves as High Performing Learners. (Article 28 – Every child has a right to an education). Through practice, we believe that our pupils will develop the ability to become competent learners. All pupils are fluent in mental and written calculations and are able to use a range of strategies to solve problems. At Parkhill Junior School, resources are key to children’s development of mathematical skills as they facilitate the learning for our pupils and help them to develop a deep understanding of the subject through a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach. Through daily maths lessons, children are able to become fluent in calculations and are able to reason, slef-correct and explain clearly, their reasoning. Pupils also have the opportunity to use their enquiry skills when solving complex problems and learning through the trial and error method which enables them in reflecting, reasoning, justifying and applying their learnt knowledge to solve problems (Article 13 – Every child has the right to say what they think.).At Parkhill Junior School, we want our children to be enthusiastic learners who are curious, willing to learn, take risks and to never give up by believing in themselves.

White Rose Scheme

Our maths learning is supported by the White Rose Scheme, a learning programme which focuses on teaching maths through a variety of concrete, pictorial and abstract methods to ensure that the children are able to access mathematical concepts via fluency (knowing how to calculate/multiplication tables, etc), reasoning (explaining their thinking) and problem solving (solving problems in a variety of ways). This scheme is supplemented by a variety of different resources to ensure that lessons are practical, engaging and challenging for all learners. Below are the yearly overviews for each year group.
