Our aim at Hambrough Primary is to ensure that all pupils are:
- Fluent in the fundamentals of mathematics, including through varied and frequent practice with increasingly complex problems over time, so that pupils develop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accurately.

- Able to reason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical language.
- Can solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety of routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutions.
- Enjoy maths and have a positive attitude towards maths.
- Acquire a deep and lasting interest in mathematics.

Our curriculum allows pupils to develop the following disciplinary skills within the domain of Mathematics:

  • Pattern & structure (supports fluency)
  • Varied representation
  • Comparison (proportionality)
  • Logic using proof (reasoning)
  • Conjecturing
  • Generality/generalisations
  • Divergent thinking (thinking outside of the box!)
  • Communicate mathematically

The following categories of knowledge are used to support pupil retention of information by fostering the development of schemas:

  • Number and place value
  • 4 operations (+/-/x/รท)
  • Fractions
  • Geometry- shape
  • Geometry- position and direction
  • Geometry- statistics
  • Measurement
  • Ratio and proportion

We are pleased to inform you that once again we are rolling out the Mathletics  programme for all pupils from Reception to Year 6 this academic year. We feel that the progress that has been made whilst using Mathletics in previous years and the increased confidence of many of our children make this a worthwhile programme to continue with. We are pleased that so many of you have supported your child with its use at home and hope that you too can see the benefits.
