We are passionate about the developments children make in mathematics. Children in all year groups are introduced to new concepts by exploring hands-on resources before moving to pictorial and abstract levels of questioning. We aim for a balance between mathematical fluency (arithmetic), reasoning and problem solving in order to ensure that our children are able to apply the skills that they learn in the classroom to everyday life.
Children are also given opportunities to apply their learning in mathematics during themed weeks, periodically placed throughout the academic year. By creating a rich and exciting mathematical curriculum, we aim to create budding mathematicians, who have deep understanding of number and a desire to tackle a range of problems in order for them to become life-long mathematicians.
