At Mitchell Brook School we believe all pupils are capable of achieving a high standard of Mathematics. We believe that developing early number sense, using a range of images and resources, are essential foundations for more advanced maths and problem solving skills. We build on this early knowledge to recall and apply mathematics knowledge fluently and rapidly.
We teach Maths with a growth mindset in mind - creating a love of learning and resilience so that levels of thinking can become sophisticated. We challenge higher levels of thinking, through problem solving and questioning, to stimulate mathematical creativity.
Problem solving is at the heart of our teaching. We aim to help learners to appreciate the wonder of maths cross curricularly through science and technology, creating lifelong mathematicians.
Our STARS values remind us we are lifelong learners:
We aim for SUCCESS, mistakes are a welcome part of learning.
TEAMWORK is at the heart of reaching our goals.
We are armed with our ASPIRING ATTITUDE- growth mindset in mind.
We RESPECT ourselves, mathematics and those who we work with.
Our appreciation of the wonder of maths enhances our SPIRIT.
