A large emphasis is placed on children being able to use and apply the knowledge, skills and understanding of Mathematics across the whole curriculum. Our young mathematicians are presented with relevant challenges, working individually, in pairs or small groups as appropriate. We believe that a good knowledge and understanding of numeracy basics is key to children feeling confident about all aspects of mathematics. Consequently, we place a high importance on basic knowledge of number and the use of mental strategies for solving problems. Maths lessons are timetabled each day in Key Stages 1 and 2. There are many opportunities for children to apply their skills and knowledge across the curriculum.
