Mathematics at Sandye Place Academy follows the national curriculum for KS2 and KS3. The main three aims are to:
- Become fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.
- Reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language
- Solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non- routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
This is delivered in dedicated maths lessons by Maths specialists and across the curriculum in other subjects. Please see below for more details overviews of what the pupils learn in each year group.
