Maths

Maths forms a vital part of everyday life and it is for this reason that we promote not only calculation skills but also independent thinking through problem solving and reasoning.

The syllabus closely follows the new Maths curriculum. We aim to develop the pupils’ basic mathematical knowledge using traditional teaching methods for written calculations as well as encouraging their mental arithmetic skills. Pupils are then encouraged to use known concepts to reason and help solve routine problems.

Enjoyment of Maths is important. We aim to work closely with the children during the lessons; marking work alongside the pupil, to give both individual support and extension. Across all ages, children are encouraged to see that Maths is all around them. We participate in World Maths Day and the Primary Maths Challenge.

Above all, we believe that the balance between the traditional teaching of written calculations and encouraging pupils to question; develop investigative thinking and apply their knowledge to everyday problems will allow our pupils to become confident, enthusiastic mathematicians.
