At Haydn Primary School the intent is for our Maths teaching to enable each child to develop their learning and achieve their full potential. We endeavour to not only develop the mathematics skills and understanding required for later life, but also to foster an enthusiasm and fascination about maths itself. We aim to increase pupil confidence and ambition in maths so they are able to express themselves and their ideas using the language of maths with assurance. We aim to inspire and excite students by making learning exciting, personalising our interactions with pupils through feedback and expectations, promoting independent study and encouraging risk taking by rewarding the process not just the final outcome. We want them to embody our core values; to be ready, resilient, resourceful, reflective and respectful.
Our aim is to ensure that all children:
At Haydn, we value and encourage, across all classrooms, talk opportunities, a concrete, pictorial, abstract path to learning which supports pupils to work towards having the resilience and skills required to be real life problem solvers and to be fluent in both their number skills and ability to express their understanding.
