Numeracy

Focus: Children use and apply mathematics confidently and competently in their learning and in everyday contexts. They recognise where mathematics can be used to solve problems and are able to interpret a wide range of mathematical data.

Children learn how to:

  1. represent and model situations using mathematics, using a range of tools and applying logic and reasoning in order to predict, plan and try out options
  2. use numbers and measurements for accurate calculation and an understanding of scale, in order to make reasonable estimations
  3. interpret and interrogate mathematical data in graphs, spreadsheets and diagrams, in order to draw inferences, recognise patterns and trends, and assess likelihood and risk
  4. use mathematics to justify and support decisions and proposals, communicating accurately using mathematical language and conventions, symbols and diagrams.
