Mathematics at Newtown Intent
By adopting a Mastery approach, it is intended that all children, regardless of their starting point, will maximise their academic achievement and leave Newtown School with an appreciation and enthusiasm for Maths, resulting in a lifelong positive relationship with number. We ensure that we deliver a high-quality maths curriculum that is both challenging and enjoyable and that utilises appropriate apparatus for children to develop their mathematical models and understanding. We want children to make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. We aim to develop independent learners with inquisitive minds who have secure mathematical foundations and an interest in self-improvement. We want them to know that maths is essential to everyday life and that our children are confident mathematicians who are not afraid to take risks.
