Statement of Intent 2021 – 2022:
A place where our children, adults and community can grow and thrive rooted in
Kindness, Fellowship and Confidence.
At Stanhope Barrington C of E Primary School, we understand that maths is an important part of everyday life and we strive to equip all of our children to become confident and resilient mathematicians. We do this by teaching the Mastery approach which seeks to provide children with a range of strategies to apply in context. The children are taught Fluency, Reasoning and Problem-Solving skills based on the 5 Big Ideas. We support the children to become reflective thinkers and to use a range of skills to complete challenging problems. All children are encouraged to use concrete, pictorial and abstract representations to portray their understanding. By providing the children with a rich, broad and exciting curriculum our children develop a positive and enthusiastic attitude to the subject, which will provide the children with key life skills and inspire some to pursue STEM subject careers in their future.

Reception – with Mr. Storey (lead), Mrs. Heslop-Stead
How can we represent numbers? – We have been quick to begin number sessions in the Amethyst Learning Zone. Using inspirational videos from the Number Blocks the children have been busy using a range of resources to represent different umbers. The children also used Stem sentences to explain their number understanding to their peers.
