Mathematics is an interconnected subject. At Sheen Mount, all children, whatever their starting points, are given opportunities to make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop fluency, reasoning and competence in solving increasingly sophisticated problems.
A deeper understanding of key mathematical principles and concepts is instilled in our children in order to underpin the reasoning and application of those concepts. This understanding is encouraged through the use of collaborative learning to build confidence and inspire alternative methods of problem solving.
This area of the curriculum provides a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics, and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject. All children at Sheen Mount are inspired to be excited about maths and seek out opportunities to use their skills in everyday life.
