Mathematics at Mesty Croft Academy
At Mesty Croft Academy, our teaching of mathematics is based on a mastery approach underpinned by the belief that every child is capable of success-embracing our school motto ‘Believe and Achieve’. We encourage children to develop their knowledge and understanding of mathematics and become confident mathematicians, using our key learning behaviours to challenge and support our children to grow as learners and individuals. We strive to instil a positive attitude towards maths and an understanding of the importance of mathematics in everyday life. Children link old and new learning experiences together in order to develop fluency and build a deeper understanding of their maths. Opportunities for reasoning, explanation and clarification are provided through talk and high quality dialogue within the classroom, ensuring our children are challenging their own thoughts with those around them, whilst enriching their knowledge and understanding.
