We believe that mathematics is a creative and essential part of the curriculum. Mathematics is a critical means of communication, a powerful tool enabling us to find answers to problems and puzzles. Our aim is for children to be confident and competent mathematicians through practical learning and enthusiastic teaching.
We aim to develop an appreciation of number, space and pattern and develop an awareness of the basic structure of mathematics. Most of all we ensure that learning mathematics is fun and relevant.
Teachers carefully plan work to match the needs of the children so that all of our children can make those crucial steps forward. We challenge the most able children to develop skills that are associated with the application of maths. We call this ‘mastery’. This provides high quality and challenging teaching for any child who might demonstrate the ability to apply their understanding at a high level.
To inspire a love and appreciation of mathematics and an understanding of its role in day-to-day life, we have introduced special maths enrichment days through the school year. These days focus on exhilarating and exciting problem solving and promote team work. Our STEM careers day will also help to inspire mathematicians for the future.
Children can complete maths home learning activities online, via ‘My Maths’ (See the link below). They can also access TT Rockstars online to learn their times tables in a fun and engaging way.
Below you will find links to a range of resources to help parents to support their children at home, such as calculation policies and additional
guidance on the maths strategies taught in the school. You will also find leaflets with suggestions on how to make maths fun, relevant and accessible at home.
