Mathematics

We aim to develop a positive and independent approach to mathematics so that maths is fun. Mathematics involves much more than simply doing sums, although basic skills in arithmetic are essential. Mathematics involves investigative work, problem solving, word problems and many direct practical experiences to develop understanding. 

Effective use of IT assists learning for all children. In line with the National Curriculum, the emphasis in learning mathematics is upon practical work and encouraging children to work through their own strategies and recording their work informally. By regularly explaining their reasoning and listening to the way in which other children have tackled the same problem, each child is able to modify their strategies in the light of their experience. 

Planning is based upon the learning objectives in the National Curriculum and each child’s progress in achieving the key objectives is regularly assessed and this information is used to inform our planning.
