Our children are encouraged and helped to develop a positive attitude to mathematics from their earliest days in school and beyond. Through exploration of mathematical concepts in the Early Years to daily Maths teaching as well as dedicated 'Robust Maths' sessions in the Primary phase- we aim to develop mathematical fluency, problem solving and reasoning skills within our children.
In Mathematics we encourage all children to make connections between all aspects of their learning, we use our knowledge of shape, space in Art and DT. In cookery lessons we apply our knowledge of mass and weight and in Science lessons we track data, take careful measurements and create graphs. We aim to provide real-world examples and context for all of our mathematics teaching to give purpose and meaning to each lesson for example, learning numbers above a million in relation to the cost of football players or showing how counting time in milliseconds is crucial in Olympic races.
