Maths Problem Solving

The National Curriculum for Maths ensures pupils gain 'Mastery'  in all areas of Maths and then  are given opportunites to progress further with 'Greater Depth'.

At Sutton Valence Primary School we aim to develop our pupil's skills in problem solving and reasoning and being confident to talk about maths. Teachers make links to everyday contexts and encourage pupils to use manipulatives to support their understanding and reasoning.


We are currently encouraging pupils to see that Maths is all around us. The picture below has a wealth of mathematical reasoning opportunities - can you see them?
