At Dunbury we deliver maths through a teaching for mastery approach based around The Five Big Ideas: fluency, mathematical thinking, variation, representation and structure, and coherence. This is an evidence-based approach to teaching mathematics that helps pupils develop a deep, long-term and adaptable understanding of the subject. We want children to leave Dunbury as mathematical thinkers; able to problem solve, spot patterns, make connections and ask mathematical questions about the world around them.
