Maths

It is our aim in maths to:

  • Offer a broad and balanced curriculum
  • To develop children’s confidence and competence with numbers and measures
  • To present maths in an exciting and challenging way
  • To develop children’s ability to apply their skills in problem solving and practical activities
  • To ensure that children learn to record their work in an appropriate manner
  • To ensure that children are confident in using technical vocabulary to explain their reasoning
  • To help children realise that numeracy is relevant in many aspects of their lives and in their immediate environment

We do this by:

  • Making maths lessons fun and engaging
  • Teaching daily mathematics lessons,
  • Providing opportunities for interactive oral work with the whole class and groups
  • Placing an emphasis on mental calculation
  • Differentiating work to meet the needs of individuals and groups, with all pupils engaged in mathematics
  • Empowering the children to self differentiate through our 'Ready, Steady, Go' system
  • Making school maths true to real life
  • Ensuring the children build their maths concepts through the use models, images and problem solving opportunities.
