Essence of Maths


At Albany Infants and Albany Juniors, we teach mathematics by meeting the requirements of the national curriculum. We aim to inspire high quality mathematicians providing a foundation for understanding the world, the ability to reason mathematically, an appreciation of the beauty and power of mathematics and a sense of enjoyment and curiosity about the subject.


We aim to achieve this by teaching knowledge and skills through high quality sequences of lessons which are designed to help pupils develop their understanding.  Each lesson will include:


  • Fluency of skills through frequent practice
  • Reasoning using mathematical language 
  • Problem solving in real life contexts
    Teaching is designed to take account of our five key curriculum drivers with skills and knowledge taken from our progression documents to ensure age appropriate content. Where appropriate, links are also made to ensure that children’s social, moral, spiritual and cultural development is enhanced through mathematics.
