Our curriculum offers a broad foundation of mathematical experiences designed to provide pupils with the understanding, skills and knowledge to deal with everyday situations.
We believe that Mathematics is a creative activity that should be enjoyed. It is a means of communicating information and ideas. We provide useful tools for problem solving and encourage logical thinking and reasoning. It provides pupils with important knowledge and skills necessary to live an independent life as it is everywhere and we use it all the time. The new 2014 curriculum puts greater emphasis on maths for everyday life, namely money and time, including analogue, digital and Roman numeral clocks.
Generalising class-based learning into other areas of the curriculum and the wider community. For example, the use of weighing and measuring in cookery, telling the time and reading timetables, measuring speed, distance and time, sequencing, budgeting and costs, and price comparison.
Each pupil is timetabled Maths. Pupils will follow topics from the National Curriculum at the level suitable to meet their needs and abilities. ICT opportunities for Maths are delivered when appropriate
Pupils are regularly assessed and monitored, using both formal and informal methods to ensure progression. Pupils are also encouraged to peer assess their work and identify the next steps to move their learning forward.
Encourage your child to solve simple everyday maths problems at home.
