The aim of mathematics teaching is to provide individual children with effective mathematical skills, and confidence in using them. Mental work forms an important part of the maths sessions. Investigation work provides intellectual stimulation and discovery.
We ensure that our children have a thorough grounding in practical opportunities to develop their understanding of mathematical concepts prior to any formal recording taking place. Our aim is to develop numerate and confident children who are able to apply their knowledge logically.
Daily mathematic sessions follow the National curriculum and include opportunities to develop the children’s mental and oral strategies, to support problem solving, fluency and reasoning. Computing is also used to support learning where appropriate. Work in mathematics can be linked with various other areas of the curriculum and is not seen as a subject in isolation. We also have a weekly maths games library to support learning at home.
