Maths

The school plans teaching and learning on the National Curriculum. We aim to give the children a rich variety of experiences in Maths; these range from practical activities, to formal, class-based lessons delivered using a range of schemes and resources. Times tables are essential and the school places great emphasis on pupils knowing them off-by-heart as soon as possible. Work with calculators is encouraged, although it must be stressed that considerable work is carried out developing and extending mental arithmetic skills. We encourage, monitor and assess problem solving each term throughout our school and keep examples in each child’s Problem Solving in Focus Books.
