Mathematics

A Hoyle Court Mathematician

 

“Mathematics knows no races or geographic boundaries;

for mathematics, the cultural world is one country.”

(David Hilbert)

 

At Hoyle Court Primary School, it is our vision to design a curriculum which is accessible for all, will maximise the development of every child’s ability and inspire a lifelong love of Maths.

Maths is essential for everyday life, critical to science and technology, and vital for many forms of employment. We aim to provide pupils with a curriculum that will allow children to make rich connections across mathematical ideas to develop their fluency, reasoning and resilience in solving increasingly sophisticated problems. We aim for maths to also be something which will stay with them, helping them in their future lives.

Children will be given the opportunity to apply their mathematical knowledge to science and other subjects and realise that maths has provided the solution to some of history’s most intriguing problems. Lessons in school will be engaging, inclusive with practical hands-on activities and when appropriate linked to the local area and local events. We want children to see maths presented in a range of ways to broaden and embed their knowledge of the subject so they are confident in the subject.

We aim to provide children with a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, problem solve, an appreciation of the beauty and the power of mathematics and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.
