Maths is an essential skill that is celebrated and enhanced at Harold Wood Primary School. The children receive a varied and balanced Maths curriculum which draws on every day life to prepare them for Maths in the wider world. We use Symphony to teach and assess key skills and objectives which include number, shape, spaces, measures and reasoning.



Reasoning gives maths a purpose and helps children to explain their answers and their thinking. Mathematical reasoning is justifying processes, procedures, and creating strong conceptual foundations and connections, in order for children to be able to process new information.

Reasoning moves children beyond simply memorising facts and towards thinking beyond the

rules and procedures to form their own questions.
