Maths at Maun Infant and Nursery School


At Maun Infant and Nursery School we believe that Mathematics is a skill for everyday life that every child should be able to access and enjoy. We want the children within school to have a genuine enjoyment and curiosity of maths and the ability to apply their mathematical knowledge to solve problems in the classroom and in real-life contexts. Using the programmes of study from the National Curriculum and Pearson’s Power Maths, linked to the Schemes of Learning from White Rose Maths we aim to develop these, as well as children’s mathematical vocabulary and their abilities to logically think and reason about different problems.


Our aims as a school are to:

  • Develop children’s growth mindsets and positive attitudes to Mathematics, linked to Maun’s Characters for Learning.
  • Help children become confident and fluent with number and mental calculations
  • Allow children to become problem solvers who can reason and explain their answers
  • Develop children’s use of mathematical language.
  • Help children to become more independent in their Maths learning.
