Maths Curriculum at Mayflower

We love maths at Mayflower and we believe that the greatest mathematicians look something like this...

Enthusiastic learners

Risk takers

Collaborators


Problem solvers


Use a variety of strategies


Learn from making mistakes

We achieve this by encouraging children to take ownership of the learning process by choosing their own level of challenge, through chilli challenges set by class teachers. This ensures that all children are appropriately challenged and able to use and apply skills both independently and collaboratively. We strive to be the best at Mayflower and are always developing our problem solving skills and exciting hooks into learning. Children are encouraged to take risks, develop a growth mindset and not be afraid to make mistakes. Maths lessons are linked to our half-termly topics, for example, using ratio and measurement to make a super smoothie for a Greek god. This ensures that our maths learning is practical and meaningful as well as fun. In addition to learning in class, we also learn through exciting drama productions, puzzle workshops and educational visits. All children from Year 1-Year 6 have an online log in to Mathletics, so that maths learning can happen at home as well. We encourage parents to get involved too, with regular workshops to equip them with the skills to help their child’s math journey to excellence.

"What a fantastic school! Enthusiastic children and very welcoming staff. Look forward to my next visit."
