Thurleigh Mathematics Vision
Our Mathematics aims to enable children to develop self-awareness, independence and resilience within their learning. For our children to be continually challenged and have the highest expectations of themselves.
Within Upper Key Stage Two, children choose their written mathematics challenges independently. Selecting green, blue or red. (Green being simplest and red being hardest challenge). This intends to develop their self-awareness, involvement and confidence within their learning, by progressing from levels of challenges independent. Furthermore, this removes ceilings as children can seamlessly move through challenges under their own direction. Lower Key Stage Two are currently transitioning into the same approach.
