Curriculum Intent – How we are developing our children to fulfil their potential as Mathematicians.
At St Georges we use the ‘Big Maths’ scheme- which is a systematic and structured approach to ensure all children become numerate and then become fully rounded mathematicians. At the heart of this structure are the detailed sequences of learning through progress drives. Big Maths ensures every child has a solid foundation of Core Knowledge before they start to use and apply it to wider mathematical concepts such as shape, fractions etc. Recognising the evidence of ‘Cognitive Load Theory’, Big Maths helps to manage the load and maintain balance between working and long-term memory
