We are committed to inspiring children to love mathematics and overcome barriers through clearly differentiated and personalised learning opportunities. We challenge our More-Able Mathematicians further through additional More-Able and Talented weekly sessions and through a differentiated, personalised teaching and learning programme.
We promote Mathematics through outdoor learning and practical experiences and plan purposeful learning and make links to their everyday lives. Mathematics teaching builds on prior knowledge and gaps are addressed through regular guided sessions. Our children’s mental maths and problem-solving skills are developed through frequent rehearsal in different contexts. We emphasise this through regular homework activities including revision for ‘Tables’ tests.
We follow a ‘Calculations Strategies’ policy which we share in booklet form with parents and carers in addition to providing Mathematics workshops to share our practice.
