Welcome to the Maths Department
… where we proudly foster a ‘can do’ attitude with our ‘YesUCan’ mindset.
We aim that students:
• are mathematically coherent
By focusing on one key point each lesson, students achieve deep and sustainable learning and make mathematical connections.
• understand mathematical structure
By using varied representations, students understand the structure of mathematics.
• are mathematically fluent
By discussing appropriate methods, strategies and approaches, students work efficiently, accurately and flexibly.
• think mathematically
By focusing on the principal that 'the answer is only the beginning', students describe, explain, justify, convince and prove mathematical ideas.
• are resilient
By providing opportunities to solve problems in both familiar and unfamiliar contexts, students develop their resilience and embrace a 'have a go' attitude.
