Wisdom – our children will make rich connections across mathematical ideas and vocabulary helping to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving. This will help children to apply their mathematical knowledge in other subjects and real life contexts.
Independence – our children will ensure their thinking is clear to themselves and others. The highlighting of misconceptions and mistakes will ensure that children become adept at spotting these independently and embracing mistakes as part of the rich learning process. Children will select and utilise concrete and pictorial manipulatives to help them see the structure of the mathematics and solve problems independently.
Creativity – our children will become powerful thinkers by making connections, thinking logically and using space, data and numbers creatively. Children will explore the beauty of mathematics by looking at patterns and forming their own lines inquiry. Children will create eloquent reasoning to explain their thinking.
Kindness – our children will develop a sense of curiosity and appreciation of the beauty that mathematics provides. They will work collaboratively with others to develop their reasoning, helping each other develop mathematical thinking with compassion. They will begin to have an awareness of the applications of mathematics in society in helping people to lead healthier and happier lives.

Maths Morning for Early Years and Key Stage 1: Tuesday 11th January 2022 at 9am
Here are just some of the tetrahedrons that you made at home for our Christmas maths challenge. You can see that we have constructed larger Sierpinski tetrahedrons from the individual ones. This makes them a 'fractal shape': a shape that is made of smaller versions of itself. Well done everybody who took part! Well done everyone - some beautiful designs and accurate nets.
