Maths Curriculum

At the Arches we believe that mathematics teaches us how to make sense of the world around us through developing a child’s ability to calculate, to design and to solve problems. It enables children to understand and appreciate relationships and pattern in both number and space in their everyday lives.


At the Arches we believe the aims for mathematics are;

  • To promote enjoyment and enthusiasm for learning through practical activity, exploration and discussion:
  • To promote confidence and competence with numbers and the number system:
  • To develop the ability to solve problems through decision-making and reasoning in a range of contexts:
  • To develop a practical understanding of the ways in which information is gathered and presented:
  • To explore features of shape and space, and develop measuring skills in a range of contexts:
  • To understand the importance of mathematics in everyday life.
