The 5 Part Model
At Castle Hill we aim to develop in all children:
High expectations – of themselves and each other. To have a passion and enthusiasm for mathematical concepts, language and ideas and to consider themselves as ‘mathematicians’,
Independence – to become fluent in maths, and to confidently and efficiently use and select appropropriate written and mental methods.
Resilience – to be able to solve problems by applying their mathematical knowledge to a range and variety of problems, even those problems which are unfamiliar, and to real life scenarios.
Innovate – to reason mathematically and follow a line of enquiry, to convince using justification, proof and mathematical language.
Enjoyment – because they are developing increasing mathematical fluency and ‘can do it’.
