Mathematics is taught on a daily basis within our school. Each session begins with a short warm up session that helps the child to focus on mathematics followed by teacher input about a specific area of mathematics and activities that reinforce the teaching.
We provide structured practical and exploratory activities to enable children to learn facts, gain skills, develop understanding and a positive attitude towards mathematics. Children are taught and develop according to individual ability, so that by the end of Key Stage 1 they have confidence, knowledge and understanding in number, money activities, pattern work, shape and measurement, and are able to apply these skills to real everyday situations. Connections are made across all mathematical concepts in order to develop fluency, mathematical reasoning and competence in solving problems. In Year 2 the children are grouped according to their ability.
