Maths

Maths is a central aspect of the curriculum and is taught every day. We encourage a love of maths and emphasise that everyone can be competent in and enjoy the subject. We place great emphasis on learning using high quality concrete resources, through games, problems and practical tasks coupled with an uncompromising goal of learning and memorising key facts such as number bonds.

Our policy (2019) describes our particular approach to the teaching of maths.

Maths in Early years

Our Maths teaching is supported by Numicon Firm Foundations.

Each half term we will send out a letter explaining the key mathematical concepts we will be exploring. 
Have a look at https://www.topmarks.co.uk/interactive.aspx?cat=139 for some lovely interactive number songs to sing with your children. 

Maths in Key Stage 1

We follow a Maths Mastery approach, using the Inspire Maths scheme as a guide. To support you in helping your child with maths at home, Oxford Owl, the publishers of Inspire have created videos and published excellent materials that address specific areas of the maths curriculum including: counting, addition, subtraction, fractions and so on.
