Key Concepts taught through our mathematics curriculum

Our mathematics curriculum at St George's School has been designed and sequenced so that the children build upon their knowledge through key concepts that are taught throughout the mathematics curriculum from EYFS to Year 6.

Our key concepts are as follows:

  • Number and Place Value
  • Addition and Subtraction
  • Multiplication and Division
  • Fractions, Percentages and Decimals
  • Geometry
  • Statistics
  • Measure
  • Algebra

Our Maths Ethos

At St George's School, our aim is to inspire an intrinsic love of maths in our children. We value the importance of developing a range of mathematical skills including reasoning; problem solving and mental arithmetic. 

Our problem solving and sophisticated questioning across the school encourages our children to make connections between different mathematical concepts and explain their reasoning behind problems that they face. We value the importance of challenge and encourage our children to challenge their own abilities to continually improve and build on their existing knowledge. 

We provide our children with a wealth of learning equipment to support their visual understanding in lessons.

Vocabulary at St George's School

At St George's Primary School, we are committed to ensuring that the correct mathematical terminology is introduced and used right from the beginning of the learning journey. By using the correct vocabulary right from the beginning, we avoid placing any barriers between children and their understanding of mathematical concepts. In unison with this, we actively encourage children to discuss their ideas and methods towards tackling mathematical problems. When children learn to talk purposefully together about maths, barriers are broken down and they grow in confidence, skills and understanding. Building a healthy culture of vocabulary in our classrooms is key.
