At Bean Primary, we constantly strive to raise the standards of achievement in Mathematics for all children whilst accommodating all styles of learning.  Our aim is to tailor the learning and teaching for each child, fostering within them the key skills of persistence and resilience to create independent, enthusiastic and creative problem solvers.  To this end, the new National Curriculum for Mathematics (which we have embedded at Bean since September 2014) aims to ensure that all pupils:
  • 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.
  •  Can 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.
