Mathematics is a tool for everyday life. It is a whole network of concepts and relationships which provide a way of viewing and making sense of the world. It is used to analyse and communicate information and ideas and to tackle a range of practical tasks and real life problems. It also provides the materials and means for creating new imaginative worlds to explore.

A copy of the National Curriculum for maths can be downloaded from the following link:
St John's Primary School follows the Hamilton Flexi block sequences to support the planning of maths which is tailored to the needs of individual children. In addition, we teach fluency following the No Nonsense Number Facts. This provides a coherent programme for supporting fluency in number facts. It focuses on using understanding of mathematical relationships and making connections between what is known and unknown, putting reasoning at the heart of teaching for fluency.
