Sub-Intent for Maths
At Pilgrims’ Cross CE Aided Primary School we believe that Mathematics is a foundation for understanding the world. We value a Maths curriculum that is meaningful, creative and engaging. We want our pupils to understand the purpose behind their maths learning, to forge connections between different areas of Maths and to apply their knowledge to the wider curriculum and to their everyday lives. We are committed to developing children’s curiosity about the subject, as well as developing an appreciation of the beauty and power of Mathematics.
When the time comes for children to leave Pilgrims’ Cross, we are committed to ensuring that they are equipped with the firm foundations from which they can continue their mathematics learning: to go on with readiness for the learning challenges and opportunities that await them and ultimately become numerate adults. This intent is linked to the following Sustainable Development Goals: Quality Education, Decent Work and Economic Growth and Industry, Innovation and Infastructure.
Implementation of the Maths Curriculum
At Pilgrims’ Cross, we are guided by the Hampshire Unit Plans when structuring our Maths Curriculum. The Hampshire Unit Plans group and sequence Maths National Curriculum Objectives for each year group, into Autumn, Spring and Summer Term Unit Plans. Please see the documents below for more detail.
The maths objectives from each Hampshire Unit are then broken into ‘steps’ within a ‘Mini Learning Adventure’ (a 2-3 week unit of work). A maths mini adventure will set the maths learning within an engaging and meaningful context which is directly linked to the children’s overall ‘Learning Adventure’.
Below are examples of Maths Mini-Learning Adventures:
