Mathematics is a powerful tool, which enables us to make sense of our world. We aim to equip children with the necessary skills and understanding within the New Curriculum and the domains of number, measurement, geometry and statistics (plus ratio & proportion and algebra in Year 6). In turn, we aim to enable them to tackle practical tasks and to solve real life problems and to develop children's powers of reasoning and logical thinking through the exploration of mathematical structures.
Daily Maths lessons include whole class mental calculating, group work, when activities enhance understanding of the learning objectives and a plenary/discussion to conclude the lesson and review concepts learned. Formal methods of recording are introduced gradually as the children develop their mathematical skills.
