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 Maths Mastery at Belmont Infants (2022) describes our particular approach to the teaching of maths.
