Maths

Maths is taught as a subject for an hour each day following the new National Curriculum 2014. It is also integrated into the teaching of other subjects.

The work covered includes understanding and using the number system, calculation strategies, measures, shape and space, and data handling. Children practise mental maths each day and are given frequent opportunities to apply their understanding and reasoning skills to problem solving and real life contexts.

Children learn through whole class, group, paired and individual work. Discussion and practical work play an important role alongside written work and children are helped to learn at their own particular level.

In Maths, ICT plays an important part in teaching concepts and helping children to practise key skills.

We actively encourage parents to allow children to handle money, especially as we live in the age of card payment.
