2Principles of the New Curriculum The national curriculum for mathematics aims to ensure that all pupils:become fluent in mathematicsdevelop conceptual understanding and the ability to recall and apply knowledge rapidly and accuratelyreason mathematically by following a line of enquiry, conjecturing relationships and generalisations, and developing an argument, justification or proof using mathematical languagecan solve problems by applying their mathematics to a variety or routine and non-routine problems with increasing sophistication, including breaking down problems into a series of simpler steps and persevering in seeking solutionsRoutine problems – real life everyday contextsNon routine – mostly concerned with developing pupils’ mathematical reasoning and fostering the understanding that maths is a creative endeavour eg Spaceships – Tripods and Bipods (question 29 mathematical challenges for more able page 45)

4Primary Mathematics: what has changed? (in general) Higher expectation overall.Fewer objectives.Earlier introduction of formal written methods.Emphasis on making connections across the maths curriculum.Depth not breadth – therefore Able and Talented children no longer move on to the concepts for higher year groups.Children to work broadly at the same pace through the objectives.SaraDepth not breadth – children not accelerated through the curriculum just because they are able. Breadth in this sense is about not rushing through the objectives in the years above.There is presently no intention of replacing the current level 6 papers - accelerated learning such as this is deemed to be superficial. (Parents will need to be aware of how their children will be extended instead).Refer to NC quote:“The expectation is that the majority of pupils will move through the programmes of study at broadly the same pace. However, decisions about when to progress should always be based on the security of pupils’ understanding and their readiness to progress to the next stage. Pupils who grasp concepts rapidly should be challenged through being offered rich and sophisticated problems before any acceleration through new content. Those who are not sufficiently fluent with earlier material should consolidate their understanding, including through additional practise before moving on.”National Curriculum, page 3.
