At White Ash Primary School mathematical development arises out of daily experiences in a rich and interesting environment. Children begin to initiate activities within a carefully planned environment, which promotes and extends learning. Children are encouraged to enjoy mathematical learning and become confident and enthusiastic during purposeful activities and experiences. The learning is consolidated and extended though a range of activities and gives children opportunities to practice their mathematical skills and knowledge.
Mathematics equips children with a powerful set of tools to understand and change the world. These tools include logical reasoning, problem solving skills and the ability to use abstract thinking. Mathematics is important in everyday life and is a creative discipline. It can involve moments of pleasure and wonder when a child solves a problem for the first time, discovers other solutions to a problem or finds hidden connections.
