For every child to develop a sound understanding of Maths, equipping them with the skills of calculation and applying these skills to reasoning and problem solving tasks that they will use beyond school, in real life.
At Greswold, we will provide exciting, ambitious and empowering learning that develops resilience in pupils through the use of Growth Mindset. Our Maths curriculum is devised in a way that allows children to store knowledge to long term memory. We give children the opportunity to apply their Maths skills that allow them to see how it is used in real life situations.

At Greswold, in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2, we run the Mastering Number project as developed by the NCETM in order to develop the children's number sense so that they leave EYFS and KS1 with a secure understanding of number.
This project aims to secure firm foundations in the development of good number sense for all children from Reception through to Year 1 and Year 2. The aim over time is that children will leave KS1 with fluency in calculation and a confidence and flexibility with number. Attention will be given to key knowledge and understanding needed in Reception classes, and progression through KS1 to support success in the future (NCETM).
