Maths at Iqra
Learners at Iqra Primary School study mathematics to eventually become functioning adults who are able to think.

Mathematics is an engaging subject which has its own unique place in the curriculum at Iqra Primary School. It provides our children with powerful ways to describe analyse and change the world. Children can experience a sense of awe and wonder as they solve a problem for the first time, discover a more elegant solution and make links between different areas of mathematics.

Mathematics is the means of looking at the patterns that make up our world and the complex and exciting ways in which they are constructed and realised. The language of mathematics is international. The subject transcends cultural boundaries and its importance is universally recognised. Mathematics helps us to understand and change the World and makes a significant contribution to modern British society;

Aims

  • To implement the current legal requirements for the Early Years (EYFS) through the use of the Curriculum Guidance
  • To foster positive attitudes, fascination and excitement of discovery through the teaching and learning of mathematical concepts.
  • For our children to develop a ‘can do’ attitude and perceive themselves as mathematicians.
  • To broaden children’s knowledge and understanding of how mathematics is used in the wider world.
  • For our children to use and understand mathematical language and recognise its importance as a language for communication and thinking.
