  • Persistence and perseverance through sustained and engaging activities;
  • Competence and confidence in the quick recall of basic number facts and times tables and in the understanding and use of a variety of methods of calculation;
  • Opportunities for pupils to satisfy their curiosity, use their creativity and learn in the outdoor environment;
  • An ability to develop conceptual understanding and apply such knowledge rapidly and accurately;
  • An ability to select the most efficient and effective strategies for all mathematical solutions;
  • A secure knowledge of number facts and recall of key number facts instantly (Eg. All addition and subtraction facts for each number to at least 10 and multiplication facts for all numbers to 12x12;
  • A good understanding of the four operations;
  • An efficient, reliable, compact and written method of calculation for each operation that can be applied with confidence when undertaking calculations which cannot be done mentally;
  • The ability to use their knowledge and understanding to carry out calculations mentally and to apply general strategies when using one-digit and two-digit numbers and particular strategies to special cases involving bigger numbers


As Mathematics is an inherently interconnected discipline, teachers should make links between the different areas of Maths at all times and they are also encouraged to look for links and opportunities for drawing mathematical experiences out of other curriculum areas and deliver Maths in a cross curricular way where appropriate.
