At Parkgate we promote a positive attitude towards maths. We want to instil resilience, independence and the ability to work collaboratively.
We aim to encourage the children to develop key skills that will enable them to make sense of the world around them. There is a focus on calculating, reasoning and fluency as we believe they are important skills. Fluency enables the children to recall and apply efficiently and rapidly.
We challenge higher levels of thinking through problem solving, questioning and justifying. We want all children to achieve to the best of their ability. Scaffolding resources are used to help those that need extra help whilst ensuring that they keep up with the curriculum for their year group.
