Maths Curriculum documents
The National Framework for Mathematics has been introduced into the school to enable teachers to provide pupils with a firm foundation in mathematics and set targets for raising standards in key skills. We believe in interactive, whole-class and group teaching using a variety of approaches that meet the diverse needs of individual children.
Mathematics is taught through a daily mathematics lesson. Each week the sequence of learning follows a 4 part problem including representing, fluency, probing and solving.
Lessons focus on whole-class teaching with a strong emphasis on mental calculation and, throughout the lessons, pupils are given the opportunity to explain their answers and suggest new ways of tackling problems.
We also try to relate maths to real life whenever possible and use our surroundings to learn outside the classroom on a regular basis. Problem solving is incorporated throughout mathematics lessons and displays around the school, children are encouraged and challenged to apply their skills across a range of applications.
