Our aim is to equip all pupils with the skills and confidence to solve a range of problems through fluency with numbers and mathematical reasoning. Children are encouraged to see the mathematics that surrounds them every day and enjoy developing vital life skills in this subject.
By following the White Rose Maths mastery scheme of work (linked to the 2014 National Curriculum) children expand their understanding through exploration, problem solving, discussion and practical experience.
A key aspect of teaching throughout the school involves the use of practical apparatus and visual models to promote understanding of mathematical processes and ideas. Carefully planned activities encourage children to work mentally, observe patterns, make predictions and discuss relationships. Mathematics skills are also used in other subjects such as science, ICT and art.
