Mathematics

MATHEMATICS

Mathematics is also a core subject in the National Curriculum as well as a key life skill.  Our Mathematics teaching is based on providing practical experiences to enable the child to develop logical thinking and a sound understanding of all aspects of Mathematics.

 

Years 1, 3, 4 and 5 follow the objectives set out in the National Curriculum for Mathematics and Years 2 and 6 will continue to follow the New Primary Framework until September 2015.  All classes have a designated Mathematics lesson daily.  Children are encouraged to develop a range of mental skills for dealing with number and solving problems.  Written approaches to Mathematics are developed from practical work and mental strategies.  Regular lessons also encourage the children to apply their knowledge and skills to investigations and problem solving situations.

From September 2017 we will be introducing the Inspire Maths Scheme which is based on the Singapore Maths Curriculum
