Achieving, understanding and enjoyment are key aspects in our Mathematics curriculum. Children will learn and understand concepts and skills if they enjoy their maths so we endeavour to teach Mathematics in a lively and engaging way using a cross curricular approach where appropriate and linking it to real life situations as much as possible. We encourage children to challenge themselves and to actively participate in the learning process using a variety of strategies e.g. mental strategies, talking and explaining to peers, use of apparatus and using and applying their mathematical knowledge.
Mathematics is taught on a daily basis and the children are carefully grouped according to their needs. This may be in a class, small group or in a year group above their chronological age (this usually happens in upper key stage 2). Teachers plan, using key objectives for their year group (see below), and assess carefully to ensure their children make good progress, intervention strategies are put in place to help children overcome any misconceptions.
Please use your child's year group page to find out what they are learning about each half term.
