Mathematics

We aim to develop confidence in mental calculation skills providing children with a range of mathematical strategies and understanding necessary for life.

Throughout our maths we concentrate on ensuring children understand how maths works and the development of a good understanding of number. Number facts such as number bonds, multiplication tables and doubling are practised and developed at school and at home. We place emphasis on investigation and practical activities working on exploration of number, shape, space, measurement and data handling. Homework reinforces objectives from the lesson and provides opportunities to practise key skills. Links are made across the curriculum wherever possible to enhance the children’s understanding of mathematics.
