At St. Augustine's School, we believe the basic skills of mathematics are vital for the future life opportunities of our children. Our aim is for all children to think mathematically, enabling them to execute basic skills fluently, reason critically and solve problems confidently. In order to do this, we access a range of resources, planning and activities to give children a broad maths curriculum.
Maths is taught through a way of teaching, known as ‘Stages of Learning’. These stages include the Teaching stage, Practise and Consolidation, Problem Solving, Reasoning, NRICH and mentorship. The Stages of Learning in maths have been designed and implemented to support children in becoming competent mathematicians across all areas of a broad curriculum, whilst at the same time challenging and enabling them to do so at their own pace.
