Numeracy

Considerable importance is attached to the children achieving and understanding mathematical processes, concepts and skills. A favourable attitude is encouraged by presenting it in an interesting and enjoyable way, allowing the children to actively participate in the learning process, thus creating a sense of achievement and confidence. There is a strong emphasis on the development of mental arithmetic and giving opportunities for pupils to use and apply mathematics in real life situations.

Maths is taught through a daily Numeracy lesson which follows the principles of the Primary Numeracy Framework. In order to develop Mathematical skills some pupils may be set for this Numeracy hour and move either to the year group above for extension as More Able (MA) mathematicians or to the year group below for consolidation of skills. Class teachers also plan for opportunities to develop and apply key mathematical skills in other subjects throughout the year.

 

 

Please use your child's year group page to find out what they are learning about each half term!
