Maths

The aims of mathematics in the National Curriculum are to broaden children’s understanding and experiences with an emphasis on mental maths, oral work and problem solving involving interactive whiteboard activities.

The children are encouraged to explain their understanding and reasoning on a daily basis. Where possible, maths is brought to life through ‘real experiences’ and is supported through key resources such as Numicon. Children also have the opportunity to consolidate their mathematical understanding through an online homework program and a wealth of mathematical apparatus and games.
